Degree show preview

Diversity is the key word describing this year's Duncan of Jordanstone degree show.

Step into the college and you are greeted with a buzz of activity as staff and final year students prepare for what is the culmination of several years' study and creative activity for more than 200 of the UK's best up and coming artists and designers.

Here is just a tiny sample of the talent that will be displayed throughout the college from 14 June as its rooms, corridors and stairways are transformed into one huge gallery. For those in search of exciting, intriguing and thought provoking experiences, the 2002 degree show is a "must do".

The creativity of DoJ students knows no bounds - jewellery and metalwork student Rebecca Mary Mills used rubber gloves to create this striking rubber and fabric jewellery.

Jill Hastie, designer and metalsmith, has combined artistic beauty and practicality with this stainless steel dish.

Ceramics student Sarah McPake has explored ideas about size and presence, creating these dramatic giant pots.

The main focus of fine art student Patricia Rorie's work is the issue of image and identity. This picture is one of a series of four, painted from photographs Patricia took of herself wearing different "props".

This unusual "automated dog walker" was designed and made by toymaker Ruth Chalmers.

Antonia Baxter has given fashion a new edge with striking body sculptures.
