How do physical spaces alter your mental state?

Giles Watkins, 23

Combining woodwork with ceramics as well as painting and drawing. I have aimed at undergoing extensive research into particular areas of craft history as well as related contemporary topics. My recent piece ‘Tea culture’ aimed at using Victorian imagery and its relationship to tea. As a way of talking about the anxiety-inducing pressures of the digital age. I saw the social act of drinking tea as a tool that breaks barriers of awkwardness, allowing people to connect in a positive light. I aimed to create a particular kind of calm experience that might encourage a unique level of connection.
