Call for submissions: plastics / resins / gloss

Do you use plastics, resins or similar materials in your art, craft and design projects? Do you make things that are shiny and glossy? Share your projects for possible inclusion in the April/May/June 2017 issue of UPPERCASE magazine. The submission form is open until January 16.

This colourful work was submitted by Jo Chambers of Studio Legohead.

Jo writes, "From a love of collage and colour came these Wonky Floral Brooches. There are four in the collection and based around my floral and foliage obsession."

Each brooch is handmade from acrylic and wood and comes in its own limited edition hand-painted gift box.

Looking at Jo's artwork and surface pattern designs, you can see how she has taken recurring motifs and translated them into dimensional objects.

"Through series of collage experiments documented via Instagram," says Jo, "it led me to make some wearable cutouts."
