Exhibition media: “Orogeny – the geological term for the structural deformation of the earth resulting in mountains – is a collection inspired by the wondrous natural environments Kim has experienced over her past year of travel. From the arid plains of Coober Pedy to the mountain peaks of Patagonia, imaginary fantastical landscapes merge to form a collection of roughly hewn, delicately embellished jewellery. Employing her signature carved forms, intricate engravings and opulent gemstone colour palette, ‘Orogeny’ merges the geological wonders observed on this journey with her internal emotional landscapes.”
There is an opal ring in this collection that is truly stunning – however I haven’t yet been able to find an online photograph of it … will keep an eye out.
‘Orogeny‘ is part of Radiant Pavilion and is at Pieces of Eight until 11th October 2015.
