This exhibition presents a new Hyperkit product - Enamel Alphabet - a series of vitreous enamelled plaques featuring different letters and numbers. The objects suggest a multitude of uses... as a door or house number, a name on a child’s bedroom door, intials on a mantle piece, a memento to mark a special date, a label for a storage box... These will be for sale for the duration of the show via an ordering system where character, typestyle and colour choices can be specified. Inspiration for the plaques came from a recent commission; Hyperkit became interested in the quality of this technique to create small, tactile objects that have a bold, graphic quality.
Also displayed for sale is Trophaeal – a pair of limited edition screenprints (in 1 colour / 5 colours, edition of 100) depicting a medal.
