I am a Tasmanian jeweller currently based in Melbourne where I have recently completed a bachelor of Fine Arts (Gold and Silversmithing). I began making jewellery at a young age and have been working in my family’s jewellery business from the age of 12. During this time I have developed a passion for fine craftsmanship and respect for jewellery as an heirloom.
In 2007 I moved to Melbourne to extend my contemporary practice and discover new technologies and working methods .
In my work I am exploring the relationship between man-made structures and biological forms. Forms such as polyhedra, geodesic domes and honeycombs are common throughout the natural and man made world as being the most efficient structural solution for a given situation. In my jewellery and hollowware I explore these forms using both CAD 3D printing technologies, and intuitive hand fabrication techniques to develop beautiful pieces that are lightweight and complex.
My work is currently avialable at Handmark Gallery in Hobart, and Pieces of Eight Gallery in Melbourne, and online at Etsy. I am also very happy to take orders for one off pieces. Please contact me for more information.
