You could be buying artworks by an as yet undiscovered 'next big thing' at a fraction of the price of its future worth. Plus, students tend to be restricted by budget and space, so most of their work is small-scale. Ceramic artist Ranjena Gohil is pictured above at her final year show, her beautiful ceramic ornaments and wall art were selling for a fraction of the price they would fetch in a private gallery.
If you're looking for some art work for your home, graduate final year art shows, where students often sell-off their work, are a great place to start.
I bought this lovely Blue Tit adorned milk bottle by the ceramic artist Jon Williams from a Christmas show at the Royal College of Art for less than £30.
