I am currently exhibiting in Japan and I will be exhibiting with the Crafts Council, One Year On at New Designers July 2003.

Jacqueline Harold has recently graduated from Staffordshire University after studying for a degree course in Design: Contemporary Crafts.

'Loco-commotion' is a range of beautifully crafted silver vessels (some with resin detail) created for the dinner table. Inspired by the movement of plants during growth, each design holds it's own character and includes simple automated elements, which encourages the diner to 'play'. Each piece moves along a silver and resin track on its own set of miniature wheels. The quirky table train can hold a variety of condiments including salt, pepper, oil, sauces, sugar and cream.

"We were always told as children not to play with our food, I am saying 'please do'. I would hope to engage the attention and conversation of those at the dinner table" says Jacqueline. " I am also interested in looking at unique ways of seasoning the food and the way that it arrives to the plate. I often add a proverb sometimes relating to the contents of the vessel, hopefully engaging the diner in thought. The interaction between the user and the piece plays a huge part in my work".

Jacqueline was recently selected to exhibit at K.M. Design in Staffordshire and also for the Raw Talent exhibition at the Shire Hall Gallery in Stafford from the 13th July - 17th August 2002.
Jacqueline was short listed for the 'Designer of the Year' at New Designers, Islington, London in July 2002.

Loco - commotion

In addition to Loco- commotion, Jacqueline has also designed and made a range of eating implements for hors d'oeuvres. To complement these eating implements Jacqueline has made a range of resin and silver bowls.

"I am fascinated by resin's potential to encapsulate other objects and to hold colour and I think that it engages itself to marry with silver perfectly.

The bowls and 'pickers' are to be enjoyed on a daily basis and special occasions within the domestic setting.
