“Craft collaborations demonstrate meticulous working-practice methods of experimentation andrealisation of the final object,” says Lianne Mallett, senior design specialist at Nokia, who pioneered theproject. “Each shape and mark has a story to tell and connects the form with the maker.”
Working closely with the Crafts Council, Nokia chose artists who have developed unique skills independent from the constraints of mass production and who could challenge the possibilities within arange of materials, including metal, glass and plastic. The final three were jewellery designer Jo HayesWard, glass artist Heather Gillespie and silversmith Esther Lord.
