Erica Poyser

I am a 3rd year student at De Montfort University finishing my Design Crafts degree where I have specialised in glass blowing. I have joined the Glass Art Society to see what opportunities are available during and after my degree! I have an instagram account that shows a lot of my work in progress and more final photos of my projects so far-

My final project was called ‘Catharsis’. I focused on the battling emotions many have had to cope with over lockdown. A Youngminds survey taken in summer 2020 recorded that 80% of respondents said the coronavirus pandemic made their mental health worse. I hope my work creates those negative emotions in a physical form to bring a cathartic feeling to the audience as they can relate my work to their own battle.
