Visited the V&A on Saturday to present a prize to Simon Davies for his engraving which was inspired by Japanese Culture. Now in its 9th year , the competition is run by the V&A as part of Adult learners week and is a great way to inspire and involve students. Simons work, said something to me about the pursuit of good, workmanship, the beauty of the material, and ultimately his potential to communicate personal interest and make comment on his source, his interests were clearly inspired by his experience at the V&A.
It was a difficult decision and the selection had to be made through the images supplied by the students. I am pleased to say that Simons image did manage to capture some of the important and beautiful qualities of his piece.
Inspired by link in associates.
