What is Making it Digital?

Making it Digital is a Hidden Art Cornwall project with Autonomatic, University College Falmouth’s 3D Digital Production Research Cluster. Recognising that many designer-makers are locked out of the innovation revolution, the project enabled ten designer-makers from Cornwall and London to work with the Autonomatic team in order to access and explore the digital technologies at University College Falmouth. This showcase presents the innovative new furniture, jewellery and interior products developed by participants during the project, including work by Charlotte Tangye, Nick Fraser, Sharon Bishop, Daisy Dunlop, Journeyman Furniture, Hannah Maughan, Ismini Samanidou, Gary Allson, Mise en Plis and Anthony Roussel.

Drummond Masterton has been selected as one of the twelve shortlisted makers for the inaugural Museums Sheffield National Metalwork Design Award.

Drummond designed a CNC milled ceremonial vessel set in an oak base highlighting the importance of water to the city of Sheffield. Local reservoirs have played an important role in the history of the city not only in supplying water to the steel industry but also as a test site for the bouncing bomb, developed by Barnes Wallis.

Drummond’s piece comprises of two components; an aluminium CNC milled vessel containing a 3 dimensional terrain of the area surrounding the reservoirs Derwent and Ladybower, the internal and external surfaces of which are engraved to represent ripples in water and geological strata. The base component is CNC milled from oak, the terrain continues as a unified surface as if permeating the vessels walls.

The Museums Sheffield National Metalwork Design is a new £10,000 prize which will be awarded every two years to an emerging or established artist from anywhere in the UK who has demonstrated their ability to move the tradition of metalwork forward. The twelve finalists have been chosen by an expert panel and a winner will be selected on 2nd December. The National Metalwork Design Award 2008 is sponsored by Yorkshire South Tourism, in partnership with Yorkshire Forward and South Yorkshire Objective 1.

The National Metalwork Design Award is on show at the Millennium Gallery, Arundel Gate, Sheffield, S1 2PP, from 4th October until 3 December 2008.
