WINNER - JMGA-NSW Established Contemporary Jewellery Award
Yield Bowl, was part of solo show, Fold Yield, in 2018. It was a series of large vessels and jewellery pieces exploring surface, form and juxtapositions of heavy shapes with bright colours and negative space. Building from single sheets of cardboard, shapes were manipulated and scaled. Yield Bowl was the first piece produced for the show, starting out as a hand sized piece. It was modeled and remodeled several times, tested in thin aluminum shim and then finally water jet cut from mild steel sheet. Hand finished, textured, engraved, patinas & waxes were applied; then hand folded and manipulated into its final form.
