And then more…

Following from yesterday :

  1. full metal weaving
  2. scroll/poster hanging
  3. cut and framed
  4. free play and pinned
    ..
  5. free play, pinned and adorned
    for the Winter Brooches‘ exhibition at Studio 20/17 in 2010; I don’t consider these pieces very successful actually, though I quite like the bar brooch at the bottom of the image

    Time: group

    … the ‘Quotes’ group for that exhibition were better in my eyes, as they’re less ponderous and more whimsical

  6. long weave neckpieces
    for Winter Neckpieces‘ exhibition at Studio 20/17 in 2011; these I love!

  7. gem and bezel set
    for Oh Opal!‘ at Redox Gallery (and then Studio 20/17) in 2012; this was the start of a series of experiments with bezel setting; these, being the first experiment, didn’t have perspex on the top … that was to change for future work (to make them more durable)

    …which I then extended in the ‘My Australia’ exhibition in 2013

  8. simple bezel set
    for ‘The Love of Coffee‘ at Studio 20/17 in 2012

    then for Deck the Walls‘ at Studio 20/17 in 2012; I think they tired of my weaving (and that they didn’t sell; it’s labour intensive and therefore not inexpensive), so this was the last collection of work for this lovely gallery

    then cufflinks for Lord Coconut; including a platinum commission

    … again though, the bezel setting is similar to the cut-and-frame work; I’m still not quite content with how it seems to be trapping the material, constraining it, making it ‘less’ somehow; pretty clearly I haven’t yet figured out what is actually my problem with it!

I wonder what will happen next.
