Adam Jones has completed his degree in 3D work and sculpture. His pieces are inspired by what materials are available and what he can find, each piece determined by the materials rather than with a preconceived idea.
When hearing of his award, he said: “I thought it was a wind up”.
His lecturer Jeremy Taylor said: “Adam has worked consistently hard and is very talented. He is one of the more mature students at the university and has been a unifying force amongst the younger students in the fine art faculty.”
He has three pieces in his degree show.
After A levels Adam left school and joined Mercedes Benz, Chester where he worked for ten years, before applying to study for a degree. He has paid his way through university by continuing work at Mercedes.
Adam has now applied to do an MA in 3D design and sculpture at the University of Chester.
Managing partner at Storrar Cowdry Darlene Storrar said “We are so pleased to be involved with Chester University Faculty of Art in providing the prize. I have not seen Adam’s work as it will be unveiled at the degree show in June. I am really looking forward to it.”
The faculty of arts & media degree shows start in June and Adam, who has three pieces in the show, will receive his prize at the valedictory service ceremony on June 10.
