Isatu Hyde, who graduated from BA(Hons) 3D Design at Falmouth in 2013, has been named the winner of the 2014 Training Bursary awarded by the Heritage Crafts Association and Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust.
Isatu’s dissertation at Falmouth was on the working ideals of craftsmanship and how they encourage sustainable design, so her focus has been on craft for some time. During university she took up a series of studio assistant and volunteer posts at a number of potteries to widen her experience.
Isatu plans to study with Andrew Crouch of The Marches Pottery, Ludlow, toward making ‘things that people can afford to buy and break’. She wants to concentrate on traditional ceramics so that she can put a little more energy into people’s lives through the honesty and beauty of her pots.
