Intro
The 8th edition of the New Talents Award by Klimt02 aims to recognize the work of graduate students in our field by supporting their careers in the professional world. Nominated by our school members, one of the selected graduates will win the New Talents Award.

Concerned about current news events around ideas of "dirty money" and focusing on socio-political issues, she explored ideas of material and meaning to develop potential carriers to articulate her concerns.

Name of graduation student: Hannah Norris.
Name of guiding teacher: Debra Allman,
Programme Director Jewellery, Ceramics, and Glass, UCA Farnham

Nominated by University for the Creative Arts, UK.

Hannah’s final major project for her BA at UCA Farnham was the culmination of sustained and extensive exploration of material and process.  Concerned about current news events around ideas of ‘dirty money' and focusing on socio-political issues, she explored ideas of material and meaning to develop potential carriers to articulate her concerns. Three neckpieces emerged through this process; sin (graphite), repent (soap), and absolution (communion wafers). Bold, thoughtful and contemplative, these pieces use familiar religious connotations to comment on notions of status and power.
/ Debra Allman


Statement by the artist:
Focusing on the socio-political, Hannah explores ideas of power structures and societal constraints in her jewellery objects, questioning notions of class, status, and wealth. The series of neckpieces made from graphite, soap, and communion wafers reference the concept of dirty money, representing sin, repentance, and absolution.
