Art Space G41 residentsRachel Hardie

Rachel is a Scottish designer maker born in Glasgow and a recent
graduate of the Glasgow School of Art. She enjoys combining her love
of drawing and metalwork skills to create sketch-like objects,
inspired by the architectural quirks of her hometown. Through Rachel’s
practice she likes to use both precious and non-precious metal as she
is intrigued by their contrasting colours which she further explores
through heat patination and oxidisation. Rachel’s approach when making
is to embrace the flaws and imperfections inherent to the process. By
intentionally exposing solder joins and highlighting any marks she
therefore hopes to showcase the unique character of each piece.
