Over the past few months, the Central Saint Martins Museum has added some stunning student and graduate pieces to its collection.
Among the recent acquisitions has been work by Skye Gwillim, Rebecca Skelton and Ben Matthews, stars of our Restless Futures exhibition.
From BA Textile Design graduate Skye we have ‘Flow’, a malleable structure made of paper.
‘Assemble’ by fellow textiles alumna Rebecca consists of hand-woven seating textiles made of lino and plastic cabling. Rebecca’s other work features interlocking wood furniture wrapped in thread.
BA Ceramic Design graduate Ben collaborated with Wedgwood to create new ceramic constructions made of 3D-printed Jasperware.
Each year, one Central Saint Martins student is given the Cecil Collins Memorial Award. This year, the award went to foundation student Louis. We are lucky to now have his ‘Paper Blocks’ drawings in our Museum.
Central Saint Martins tutor and alumnus John Booth has donated 15 of his colourful, esoteric and vibrant fashion illustrations to us. He has worked with various publications, and in a recent Tatler shoot models wore giant versions of his drawings. Look out for his work in the Museum window gallery over Christmas.
