Manchester Metropolitan University's arts students have produced everything from the traditional to the cutting edge in their end of year shows.
Some have even produced a combination of both, like 3D Design studentís Hannah Louise Pittmanís soap jewellery. She got the idea when there was no soap available for her to wash her hands and noticed that she had some stuck in the ring she was wearing.
Interactive Arts student Beth Cust's boots are decorated with piped royal icing. She said they are "inspired by the fragility of time - as the icing is strong enough to hold things in suspended animation but it can also be easily cracked and destroyed."
Fine Art student Lucy Hall's piece is untitled, but the subject matter of a plastic bag stuck in a hedge, captured like a wildlife specimen, makes a strong comment about consumerism.
Paul Reid is one of several 3D Design students exhibiting and his beautiful tea bowls, made from Japanese-style glazed wheel-thrown stoneware with a dipped Zirconium glaze over the top, have visibly tactile quality.
Sophie Coomb's Fine Art piece, The Tracys Have Gone, is from the other end of the spectrum and sees the iconic Thunderbirds' Tracy Island toy take on a vastly overgrown state.
Embroidery student Lauren Steeper's sampler was made by picking random words from a jar and stitching the six which corresponded to the winning Lottery numbers in different colours chosen by dice. She said it is about "both chance and order."
3D Design student Clare Knox-Bentham describes her work as "turning drawings into three dimensions". She creates it by sketching freehand with EVA glue directly onto sheets of silicone, which are peeled off when cool and coated in coloured lacquer.
Fine Art student Kirsty Robson's work plays with traditional ideas of house decorations, providing a glittering touch to a set of chintzy ornaments.
Cathy Fuga-Carr specialised in intricate pieces during her 3D Design course, sculptures that are made from fibreglass which is fired to a temperature where it turns back into glass, which she then crochets.
3D Design student Liz Vidal's cup and coaster from her 'Park Activities' collection shows a sense of beauty and subtlety can be added to the most everyday of objects.
Similarly, fellow 3D Design student Katrina Nowotynski's vases are simple, functional and delicate. She said they are "slab built stoneware fired in a kiln [and the] patterns are created using hand carved plaster stamps."
Despite being an embroidery student Stacy Brafield's work is created using old video tape and inspired by architecture. She said she "likes the idea of taking items that would otherwise be thrown away and turning them into art."
Deana Baker's 3D Design work is jewellery that is made from aluminium which has been anodised to create bright colours, which makes it very lightweight.
MMUís end of year shows feature the work of over 1000 artists and designers and are on display at the All Saints campus until Weds 23 June.
