Stephen Wright achieved a BA First Class Honours Degree in printed textiles at Liverpool University and an MA in textiles at Manchester University. Stephen showed us the way he uses the discarded objects of everyday life to create mosaics: milk bottle tops, broken dolls, dolls eyeballs, the contents of Christmas crackers, false teeth, pen lids, crockery, and the rich pickings of a car boot sale. Worthless ubiquitous objects are turned into jewels that become an integral part of the stories he tells. His interest is driven by the impromptu aesthetic qualities that they offer. The photograph attached is of a jacket that Stephen made and brought for us to see – needless to say we wanted to take it home!
