With this one-month residency Cove Park aims to provide designers and makers based in Scotland with the support required to develop new work at a crucial stage in their careers.

Laura Lightbody is a ceramic designer working in Glasgow. Her current practice involves the collection and reuse of stickers, labels and signage found on consumer goods and packaging. She presents in a new way what is often overlooked, focusing on narrative, commentary, aesthetic qualities and graphic language to create collage and surface pattern for ceramic tableware.

Lightbody intends to use her residency period at Cove Park to reflect on a recent solo project at the Lighthouse, Glasgow and to develop independent forms outside of her current table ware range on which to work.
