Rebecca Price Design is a collection of fused glass homeware and accessories using fused glass and inclusions to create unique collection of products inspired by the wonderful British countryside that surrounds us. Having always been passionate about designing and creating Rebecca undertook a weekend glass fusing course in 2008, 2 months later a kiln was purchased and enough glass to start creating a range of jewellery. From there collections have expanded to include a wide range of coasters, accessories, framed artwork and more recently incorporating watercolour artwork into glass. The material has always been one which can be developed into new areas which
causes great excitement and room for new product development!
Rebecca went onto study 3D Contemporary Design at University, you will find a design portfolio below.
With a healthy obsession with pattern Rebecca is often found happily snapping away at random observations, a shadow casting a beautiful pattern on the ground or a drain cover design which is shouting out to be photographed for inspiration and incorporating illustrations into new ranges,
Rebecca's spare time is spent enjoying ticking off mountains to climb in Snowdonia, travelling to new places with a magpie's eye for beautiful things, usually with a camera and sketchbook in hand.
Commissions are very welcome, please contact me via the contact tab and I will be very happy to help.
University Design Portfoilio
products designed and created with simplicity at the centre. With a love for homeware which was at the forefront of Rebecca's final collection at University, where she studied 3D Contemporary Craft and Product. Since graduating in 2014 Rebecca has completed freelance design briefs for Ravenhead LTD and IC Innovations on product briefs for production and CAD projects for Habitat.Below you will find a collection of completed designs from my second and final year at University. My focus was to design products which could be mass produced for the homeware market, I built upon material experiments and really enjoyed thinking about small spaces and making design work, I hope you enjoy looking through.
Store and Pour Storage Jars
Store and Pour Storage Jars are designed to make the most of small kitchen spaces and to stop one of the main problems when cooking rice, the correct portion size. The shape of the pour jar is a designed specifically to pour into the lid which hold one portion of uncooked rice, the storage jar shape is mirrored in the lid and therefore is easy to pick up pour into the pan. The other storage jars fit together to create a space saving collection that would suit any kitchen that is conscious of space.
This design has been awarded a Design Council Ones to Watch award.
Corian© & Stainless Steel Candlestick
The wonderfully versatile material of Corian© has been the main focal point to create a contemporary version of a traditional 'Wee Willy Winky' Candlestick. Corians© material composition has been exploited by forming a curved shape that stands alone or displayed as apart of a multiple. The brushed stainless steel forms a support for the candle and adds contrast to the bold lime green Corian©.
Corian© and Stainless Steel Lamp
The inspiration came for the simplicity of the Shelia's Maid clothes dryer with its minimalist elements and functionality. This lamp uses the translucency of Corian© and the contrast of powder coated Stainless Steel and a bright orange cable. The shape of the side panels is a minimal outline taken from the original light shades used in our jewellery workshop at University. The profile of the lamp can be rotated to different positions on your desk or table to create a different path of light.
Yalu Napkin Ring was inspired by the fluid movement of meandering rivers. Perfect for a formal dining experience, an intimate dinner party and a lasting gift with an area for personalisation. Yalu Napkin Ring was commended in the Decorative Arts category at the award ceremony held in Pewterers' Hall.
This brief was to design a gift for the client John Lewis that would be made by Dartington Crystal. Tessellation has been inspired by the natural formations of repeating shapes found in nature. This has formed the design concept of a single shaped mold-blown vase that can be multiplied to create a larger collection and visual display. Market research for the client John Lewis showed products with multiple functions proved popular with the gift market. It has the versatility to be added to over time, to become a collected item tailored towards the customers’ requirements and therefore the perfect gift.
Colour Your Own Money Box
An especially designed gift for Shrewsbury Museum which allows the customer to
personalise if they wish and easily construct into their own Shrewsbury Museum Money Box.
Each panel has a laser etched iconic image which has been selected from inspirational
elements from Shrewsbury’s town history, key artifacts from the museum’s collections, as
well as connecting the old museum with the new location. This is an interactive, creative
and useful gift for children of all ages, as well as not limiting its selling possibility to other
age ranges. Children can use colouring pencil or felt tips to colour in and personalise the designs. A strong emphasis has been placed upon the product being designed and
made in Great Britain for the Museum which adds to its selling potential. Once it is filled the lid can be removed and the process can start again.
