CIRCLING the SURFACE: Vessels and Jewellery

Recently I had work in a curated exhibition called 'Profile'. Profile is a significant curated award exhibition of contemporary jewellery, objects and metalsmithing by members of the Jewellers and Metalsmith Group of Australia NSW (JMGA-NSW). The selection of works was exhibited at Airspace 2 Projects, 10 Junction Street in Marrickville between 10 - 25 July 2015.

The works I exhibited reveal the beginnings investigations and ideas addressing offerings, beliefs and space between people and object. The three vessels and pendant presented in this mini collection explores the dialogue and practice of giving and acknowledges a past and history but also a return for auspicious and spiritual assumptions associated with ancestor veneration. These object vessels in part aim to reconcile these notions through the reflective qualities of lacquer application and iridescent pearl characteristics. The exterior of the vessels are dressed with floral graphic interpreted in various dimensions. The internal spaces invite the viewer to look inside.
