Handmade_Instagram_600x600

It has been quite a journey to be ready for this exhibition.

Now it is up, I am relieved the work is done (for now), but also so impressed with the strong, beautiful work that my fellow artists have created.

Gallery Hours

Monday to Saturday 10am to 6pm

Sunday 10am to 4pm

Closing Drinks on Sunday the 22nd October.

Each artist will be taking a turn on gallery duty so there will always be someone on hand to talk about the artworks and makers. The 22nd is the day we are having closing drinks. Chat with the artists, pick up your art purchases or decide to buy one you have been wavering about, all with a glass of bubbles or a fortifying brew from Young Henry’s who kindly supported our opening night and the upcoming closing drinks.

Thanks Young Henry’s and thank you to all who came and made our opening night such a success.

Be sure to check out some of the other Craft Events under The Sydney Craft Week banner.

Ciao for now

Creative Lives: Vicki Mason, Contemporary Jeweller.

Vicki Mason is a Melbourne based Contemporary Jeweller

I was lucky enough to see ‘Dry’, an exhibition of Vicki’s recent work at Gallery 20/17 in Sydney.

Her beautifully resolved, wearable forms are creations inspired from her exploration of dry climate plants and the significance of water in the garden.

In 2015, Vicki completed an Australia Council for the Arts Residency in Barcelona and

‘Dry’ is a collection of works she has created since her return.

Vicki says of her time in Barcelona,

‘I was able to do enough research to keep me inspired for the next five years’.

“Her fountains and pools series taps into the poetic approach to water seen in Islamic gardening traditions. These ornamental garden features bring the cool, reflective, musical and playful characteristics of water to the garden, while at the same time often serving the function of irrigating its plants”.
