Introducing Victoria Radcliffe

How did you hear about the starter studio programme?

My tutors at University had mentioned Yorkshire Artspace at various times throughout my degree so I was always aware of it but didn’t fully understand what it had to offer until third year students were given a tour. This tour informed us of the fantastic studios, the programmes we could be a part of and what these programmes had to offer.

What made you want to apply?

It felt like a natural progression to join Yorkshire Artspace from University as you are given your independence yet can acquire help if you are in need from experienced silversmiths and guided through building a business plan. I heard it was a good platform to start making connections with other silversmiths/jewellers.

Can you describe your practise?

My main focus is around contemporary metalwork, I use well known silversmithing techniques alongside unconventional materials to create vessels with emotional relevance and individuality. I am interested in creating tactile pieces which invite touch instead of repelling it, I like the public to be able to interact with my work. I plan on developing and refining my graduate pieces whilst also designing and making a tactile jewellery range.

Where can people see your work?

I am featuring in a few exhibitions around the UK and in Beijing where people can see my work. I will be continuing my on-going graduate project and starting to create a jewellery range which people will be able to see at Open Studios in November, where I shall also be running a workshop. You can find my work on my website, Facebook and Instagram page
