All the fun in the world!

November 26, 2021

This was truly great experimentation with this fun technique! Incorporating colour into my work with a crayon.                                     Yes crayon!???!!!!!???!!!!

18ct yellow gold, crayons, gesso and lacquer earrings now available in Courtesy of The Artist.



I really enjoyed making this 18ct yellow gold and golden/silver Keshi pearl that                                                                                        I bought when I was traveling in Lombok, Indonesia in 2015.





To take a little break from conceptual heavy work considering global pollution I just had a play with pearls and gold.

That is right. I found some 18ct yellow gold laying around in my bedroom and I thought it would look good with some silver and golden pearls that I bought in Lombok, Indonesia, when I was traveling there. In the case of these rings, I worked mostly intuitively and explored form and flow.



The second style of neckpieces that I am working on at the moment involves even more steps in preparation of the material before individual discs are strung on a stainless steel wire. I suppose the lengthy process required to get the work done is part of the whole experience surrounding this material. After all, it takes ages for the material used for flip flops production to break down when it is discarded. It all just takes a very long time.

These are the necklaces that I am working on at the moment. Black, pink & white, and yellow & orange.



Washed on the beach…..the progress

January 24, 2020

It has been slow, but continuous progress bit of a stop and go as our location and circumstances allowed me to work on it.  These abandoned thongs travelled with us across four continents and finally found their permanent home in Australia in my home studio. I have played with different arrangements and finally decided on […]

Washed on the beach….. new work in progress

January 28, 2019

I have been looking at washed used thongs on the beach for years! I have always tried to work out how I could use them as a material. What could I make and how would I treat them. What concept would drive me to seek thongs as a material? Most of the time I just […]

I am glad that I have done this “a few” times before! It seems like no matter how well one is prepared for the bump in, it always ends up taking up the whole day. I am grateful to have such a supportive and reliable exhibition buddy like Doris. Here are a few pictures from […]

Grass is Greener joined exhibition with Doris Jurzak

August 7, 2018

Why do we always want what we don’t have? Why do I live in Sydney when so many people would give anything to live in Prague? Prague is such a beautiful city rich in history, culture and social life. Why did I move across the world away from my family and my roots? The answer […]
