Michelle Reed: I make Art with Nature in mind. I want the beauty of discarded vegetation to be noticed, by adding layers through collage and mosaic practices, I am giving the piece another identity, it still has something to tell. Fronds, Pods, Branches and more come to life with a new sense of beauty.

Sarah Schmelzer: My body of work is based off the Triadic Ballet, a 1920s German Ballet Co. based at the Bauhaus School of Design. My sculptures show the muscular requirement for female and male professional dancers whilst simultaneously exploring a fun quirky style that generally isn’t seen in such a traditional dance.
