When it comes to our own identity, we are all makers.
concealing and revealing
A new body of colourful sculptural and wearable pieces in PVC that explore the notion of constructed identity and the projected surface.
I am an established contemporary jeweller working from a studio at ʻThe Barnʼ located in the Adelaide Hills. Through my craft practice I have developed a distinctive range of jewellery by working with my signature material, polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The PVC is sourced as a clear flexible sheet and is prosaic in itʼs ʻnatural stateʼ. Simple hand worked processes such as colouring, cutting, carving and more recently, heat fusing layers, elevates this material into the precious.
The relationship between the material, maker and tool is significant element to my practice. This approach continues to push the material in creative ways and forms a self portrait of observations, concerns and issues.
Adding, removing, staying in motion, instinctive and flexible
Thinking of the past - looking toward the future
