Fine Art student awarded Kenneth Armitage Young Sculptor Prize

BA (Hons) Fine Art

Final year BA (Hons) Fine Art student Silvia Avila-Parcet is one of three students to be awarded this year's Kenneth Armitage Young Sculptor Prize.

The Kenneth Armitage Young Sculptor Prize is a prestigious prize awarded annually to final year students specialising in sculpture at art schools with which he had a close association.

Silvia was awarded the prize this year for her work, 'Terreno Estimado (Estimated/Esteemed Terrain)', a series of sculptures made from cast bronze, slumped glass, mirror, steel and light. Silvia works with traditional hand casting and moulding techniques to make sculptures that are a translation of desert type landscapes, places that appear desolate but are in fact environments that host unique ecosystems. 

Silvia has won a cash prize of £3,000
