This week I have a new exhibition opening at Milly Sleeping in Carlton.
I have been working on these pieces for the last couple of months. Each piece was made in relation to each other, all informed by the one idea, explored across different materials and processes.
An installation of pipecleaner pieces, jewellery and watercolours.

Sketches for a ring design.
This ring was a commission for a friend who was after a ring to honour the birth of her baby boy.
I also have the privilege of also making this client's wedding and engagement rings. So it was a special commission for me.
Each of the rings that Tess wears are different to each other.
An eclectic personal collection of rings.
To start off, I presented a page of possible designs, and the bottom two were preferences.
Tess has a family ring with leaf motifs on it, which is how this ring evolved.
Thank you to Tess for asking me to make this special ring for her, it was a real joy to make.

Art has to reveal to us ideas, formless spiritual essences. The supreme question about a work of art is out of how deep a life does it spring… All the rest is the speculation of schoolboys for schoolboys.

I took these two images on my phone to put on Instagram. They were intended as quick snaps to record this work.
I wear the top two rings every day. Both made as memory pieces to record private events.
Both are 18ct gold.
I wanted to make myself something that I could wear even when I work, something that would wear well. So they wear with me every day.
From all the choices before me, this is what I made for me.
My finger has changed shape because of them.
Some days I only wear one. I miss the other ring when it is not worn.
Some days I wear three rings together, however the top silver ring does not mean the same to me as the two gold rings. It is just a ring.

I took this image on my phone of a pipe cleaner work that I made a couple of years ago.
I have been drawing these pieces, which is quite a challenge I must say.
I am working towards a body of work that I will exhibit at Milly Sleeping in Carlton in April.
This body of work is called, My Assemblages, and will comprise of 4 new pipe cleaner pieces, a series of drawings/watercolours, a small range of pendants and rings.
I want to thank Leah for asking me to make this body of work for her. It was so great to be asked to make something new and unrelated to what I usually do, something exploring my own creativity.
