On The Wire: Flora Cascata
Paper, porcelain and transparent fabric adorn the wire in this collaborative installation by Manchester School of Art students Emma Scott, Gemma Spall and Ruairi Barfoot.
Flora Cascata is a celebration of craft, making and the artistic process and promotes the artistic values held by Manchester Craft & Design Centre.
Representative of Emma, Gemma and Ruairi’s interest in the decorative arts, the work is inspired by natural forms and sums up the hands on experience shared between the three students.
The piece experiments with the relationship between light and space making The Wire the perfect place for it to be displayed. The soft and delicate aesthetics are designed to satisfy and intrigue the viewer.
