Case Study

Iona Stock

York, UK

BA (Hons) Artist Designer Maker: Glass and Ceramics


Iona came to Sunderland because we offer both glass and ceramics, and small class sizes, with more tutor and taught time. She received the Futures Fund Excellence Scholarship two years running, and the Mike Davis Innovation Scholarship. Iona graduated with a First Class Honours Degree, is now working with artists Joanna Howells and Richard Heeley.

The most enjoyable thing has been the availability, amount of attention and time the tutors and support staff are able to give to each student, creating a really lovely supportive atmosphere to create artwork in.

There was a really close-knit community within the course, and real freedom within the studio space, pre-lockdown.

After graduation I will be working with artists Joanna Howells and Richard Heeley. I will also be going travelling around the world, stopping by universities to research masters courses.”
