Tea for Two – Presentation

Number of presentations and tutorials helping to clarify and refine our ideas, themes and direction of the project.


After the first presentation with Jennifer to Pete and year group, we realised our work is trying to encapsulate way too many ideas and themes: generation struggle and comparing it to previous generation, Staffordshire designs of the previous generation age, homelessness, current struggles of young adults, the post-financial crisis world.
They are similar and link in some ways, but it just became too cluttered.
Our set designs lacked experimentations and multiple stages of progress.

I proposed to look and direct our work on the ides of accommodation/containing and the lack of them, as I could see it as one of the common threads running through our broad ideas.
Jen didn’t object or suggested different directions, so I explored the ideas through the print workshop with Ann Gibbs which was a great place to experiment with the idea visually and practically; Ann giving me helpful feedback in the process.

This helped me to prepare for another presentation to Duncan, crystallising the new focused but still experimental and innovative directions.

I looked at teapot as allegorical object of domesticity and accommodation. Containing tea in its cavities.
