Melanie Kew
I am an optimist, energetic, excited, and fascinated! I have an inherent need to create and the driving forces behind my work are simple. I am drawn to colour, print and pattern and love to experiment! I am excited to complete a challenge, to realise and articulate an idea and installation is my preferred method of display. I have always been interested in architecture and engineering - what it takes to build something, the components that are needed. I realise I like to break it down, map it and piece it back together.

More recently I have found myself 'looking inside' these structures. Using tower blocks as a framework, where people live in 'boxes', alongside and on top of each other - where a myriad of events are taking place at any one time, I consider what goes on within. Ultimately, I discover I am excited by the positive energy people create and troubled when I consider the opposite.

I have just completed a degree in 3D Design:Ceramics and will continue to make functional art, further investigate installation and teach, so I can pass on the skills and joy involved in working with clay.
