A work of mine that is in the Alliages Collection will travel to Valencia as part of Melting Point 2016 Joieria Contemporània València. You can find more information on the Alliages event page here.

If you are in the area, do pop in!


Also, here is a list of all exhibitions, lectures and events that will occur as part of Melting Point 2016

lopdell house gallery / exhibition


Here is an invite to a group show 'From over there to over here', curated by Talia Smith at Lopdell House Gallery in Auckland, New Zealand, that I'm excited to be taking part in.  If you are in the area, I hope you can pop in and have a look. 

la cour des miracles / exhibition







I have the pleasure to be taking part in the upcoming exhibition 'La Cour Des Miracles', curated by Juan Riusech, and presented together with Helene Soete, that will be held from 14 Dec 13 - 18 Jan 14, at Alliages in Lille, France. If you are in that part of the world, I hope you can stop by.

The exhibition is inspired by La Cour Des Miracles (“court of miracles"). You can find more info here.

I'll be posting an image of my piece soon.

A few years ago, I attended a workshop conducted by Iris at Alchimia in Florence. It was titled 'Please be afraid of being understood'.

It was a great experience and I remember the discussions and explorations through making, that Iris encouraged. Questioning inclinations of over-explaining through work and of the value of the unsaid; allowing the work to continue, and perhaps unfold, through the viewer. But not insisting. 

Iris weaves that so beautifully through her work.

For more detailed views of Iris' work please visit her Klimt02 page here.

FIO Gallery



FIO Gallery, directed by Matt Dwyer, a jewellery maker himself, is introducing new artists and I have a great pleasure to be a part of it. You can have a further look here.

If you are in Brisbane on the night, I hope you can make it!

No time for posting, being very busy with many deadlines to meet. 
Every time I think I'm well prepared for this time of the year, and yet it turns into a whirlwind, without fail. 
Hopefully, I'll be back soon enough with some images of the pieces I've been working on.
