I'm a finalist in the Contemporary Australian Silver & Metalwork Award held this year at the Castlemaine Art Gallery and Museum in country Victoria. The opening is August 29th and the exhibition runs through until October 18th. So if you are in the area, go and check out the exhibition, lots of metalwork from over 50 talented jewellers and silversmiths.
The pieces are called "You're Growing on Me" another small series of works in my 'Contained Adornment' series, small containers that hold jewellery. The containers are made from flat copper sheet that has been hammered, formed and then soldered together with a black patina. The silver pieces are hand fabricated and I used a technique called repousse to form the blobs for the ring and earrings. The neckpiece has over 150 small moveable pieces.
