armour for humans

Currently in his second year of the UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design, Rico Jordi-Slater has a fascination for armour. Having recently created a metal hand piece (pictured) from reclaimed sheet materials including an old cymbal, Rico is now exploring equivalents in the natural world. Working with a batch production process, Rico has cast multiple plaster horse shoe crabs, hand tinting each one with a mixture of inks and paints. Intrigued by their blue blood, which is harvested from many horse shoe crabs because of its medical applications, Rico has even gone to the length of tinting the plaster to reflect this. He is now exploring how their forms might be appropriated to create a visually exciting wearable armour for humans.

Environmental Portraits


This week students in NCFE Photography have been creating their own environmental portraits.
Inspired by the likes of Sannah Kvist and Camilla Catrambone they used objects on their person to create a visual idea of their personality. The objects not only give us a clue to the life of the photographer (bus tickets, phones etc) but so does the composition. Are they messy? Are they ordered.
The results were simply shot in the studio and look striking.

“I undertook the National Diploma in Art & Design course at Truro College after being excited by the work I saw at the yearly exhibition. I was given creative freedom in experiencing many different art forms whilst being offered wonderful guidance. If you are passionate about art thats the course for you and the lecturers give you a lot of confidence.

Beyond Truro College – Will Johns


Our next look at past students who`ve gone on to bright futures is Will Johns.

`I live in London where I work as Fashion Coordinator for bi-annual luxury fashion publications 10 Magazine and 10 Men.

After completing the National Diploma in Art & Design at Truro, I went on to graduate from Central Saint Martins with a fashion degree, before working freelance at publications including The Sunday Times Style magazine. I then began my current role at 10 & 10 Men. I also work closely with international stylist and creative director Sophia Neophitou on brand consultancies which include Roland Mouret and Antonio Berardi.

My time at the college allowed me to fully explore my potential through great one on one tuition and creative freedom. My tutors provided me with invaluable direction that definitely helped shape my future in the industry.`

Paper Christmas Decorations

3D Mixed Media Study Plus created a range of hand-made Christmas decorations for the Christmas Tree in the foyer of the White Building this year.
The study plus group created origami paper stars from festive Christmas musical paper attached with rustic brown paper twine. Tom Ayling created a festive pudding theme paper from hand drawn designs edited on photoshop and printed in repeat, to create the other paper origami stars. The students also created wire and tyvek baubles using a heat manipulation technique and heat gun.
The big star feature on the top of the tree is a larger complicated 3D paper star made by Lowenna Symons and Ross Freeborn.
The students chose to follow a theme of icy blues and whites for this years tree.
