Edinburgh-born Pauline graduated with a first-class degree in jewellery and silversmithing from the Glasgow School of Art. Her degree show exhibition stood out due to her range of designs, skilful making and an exceptional overall display.
Since then Pauline won in 2009 the Hammerman Award and the Goldsmiths Company Precious Metal Bursary Award and a professional development award from the Scottish Arts Council. Her work has been exhibited at London Dazzle, New Designers at Islington Business Centre, Bovey Tracy, Devon and in January 2010 is on show at the National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh and at New Beginnings 2010 at the SDC gallery in London.
Pauline has been accepted by the prestigious Bishopsland Educational Trust which aims to give new graduates the opportunity to produce work and gain skills to enable them to become designer/makers. As part of the course, Pauline will exhibit in high-profile shows such as Collect, the international art fair at the V&A. For more information, see: www.paulineedie.com.
How the Award Helped
The Dewar Arts Award has been given to help Pauline pursue postgraduate study in jewellery and silversmithing.
Since the Award
Pauline writes "when I look back over my year at Bishopsland, I can see how far I've come." In early 2010, Pauline was selected to be part of the month-long National Museum of Scotland exhibition 'Meet Your Maker', followed by the V&A touring exhibition 'Silver from Bishopsland'.
Later, she was invited to take part in the prestigious applied arts fair 'Collect' at the Saatchi Gallery in London. Since leaving Bishopsland, Pauline and some fellow students have formed a collective of designers and will be showing at the Liverpool Design Festival and the British Craft Trade Fair.
