SALFORD DESIGNER REACHES FINAL OF LIBERTY LONDON TALENT SEARCH
 

Star date: 18th February 2018

SALFORD MISSHANDLED IN 3-D

Salford's Amanda Tiller, founder of MissHandled, has beat off over nine thousand entrants to reach the final in a search by iconic department store, Liberty London, to find the best untapped interior design talent.

Amanda does hand-made 3-D geometric home accessories, and her wild and wonderful jesmonite Object of Desire has impressed Liberty buyers, who are now asking the public to help sway their vote before they reveal the winner.

The first impression of one of Amanda Tiller's objects is 'What the 'eck is that?'. And that's the point. They are just beautiful 3-D geometric shapes with a practical purpose...sometimes.

They are adapted as wall hooks for hanging stuff on, or handles, or just 'objects of desire' - which is the name for the stunning marbled thang that has got the former Salford University graduate and now Salford resident to the final of a search by iconic department store, Liberty London, to find the best untapped interior design talent. The prize is that the product gets stocked in the prestigious shop.

Amanda has beaten off 9,500 other entrants to hit the last 13 with her marbled Object of Desire, hand-made from jesmonite, which, Wikipedia tells us, is a 'composite gypsum-based material in an acrylic resin'.

"I am obsessed with anything that has a geometrical form" says Amanda "Bright colour combinations and shapes are my passion, especially mixing them up together to get an unexpected outcome. When I saw the Liberty Open Call on social media I knew I had to enter. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be shortlisted. I am so excited at the prospect of potentially having my objects stocked in Liberty, it would be very surreal!

"My objects are inspired by things I see and love whilst exploring in everyday life, which I then transform into geometrical forms" she adds "Each piece is made using a mix of jesmonite resin to make unusual, irregular colours and patterns so every piece is one of a kind."

Amanda is the founder of online shop MissHandled, where wall hooks, handles and objects range in price from 10 to 12.50. But she now has a chance to get stocked by the top Regent Street store, with the help of Salford people, as Liberty buyers are asking the public to help sway their vote before they reveal their chosen winner during London Craft Week in May.

Voting is really easy. Just go to the Liberty Open Call website - click here - and then to scroll down to @misshandleddesign and click on the heart icon for your vote to be counted.

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over 1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
