#NUMBERED – The Kauri Collection
Earlier this year I accepted an invitation to produce a body of work using Kauri wood and gum for an exhibition at the NZ Kauri Museum. I am forever grateful to have participated in that exhibition as working with these extremely beautiful New Zealand heritage materials prove to be a new source of inspiration.
My aim at any given time is to enhance and showcase the intrinsic beauty in the materials I work with, and to challenge myself to find different fabricating techniques.
The titles for my jewellery are a sequential number of their position in the weeks, during lockdown, of experimental hand building all the original one-off art works.
