For this weeks ‘meet the volunteer’, we are delighted to introduce Sally Hackett. Sally has been volunteering with our Wednesday Aspire workshops for a number of weeks now and has become a fixture in our ceramic room. She has supported many participants to express themselves using the medium of clay and her help and support has been much appreciated by both our staff and Aspire artists alike, thank you Sally!
‘I am a recent graduate from Duncan of Jordanstone College of art, and although graduating in illustration, I currently specialise in ceramics. Combining these two aspects results in the sculptural narratives I create. My work explores the public and their perception of common decency. I like to explore the human condition, glorification and humorous aspects of life.
Mediums of printmaking, drawing, painting and textiles are also very dominant in my work. Experimentation is something that is very important to me so how successfully Project Ability utilises this is amazing.
I have found my time at Project Ability fantastically inspiring. I think clay work as a medium is a very valuable one, and feel the tactile element has worked really well with the participants. I have loved working with the open minded people, who approach with no preconceptions in a very uninhibited and creative stance. I am always in awe of the diversity of work being created.’
