Metalab new jewellery collection inspired by Island
26
Mar '08
Metalab is proud to present a collection of extraordinary new works by ten talented Tasmanian women. An exhibition 3rd April to 26th April, 2008 designed to showcase the diversity of jewellery inspired by each other and by the isolation of their beautiful island state, where traditional Tasmanian indigenous design is created alongside contemporary works.

Drawing on Tasmania's remote wilderness and natural surrounds, this distinctive collection of exhibition work explores thought provoking environmental issues from the fragility of nature and the threatened intracacies of different ecosystems, to the issues of endangered old growth forests.

A diverse range of concepts and materials are created in limited edition production pieces to exotic wearables and small sculptures, such as in Jeanette James' work “Echidna quill necklace” or discover Marisa Molin's intricate one-off sculptural forms cast in bronze and silver. Dulcie Greeno, Tasmania's longest practising Aboriginal artist, creates traditional neckpieces in Green Maireener and Rice shells.

Linda van Nierkerk's distinctive style is created using strong graphic lines and sculptural forms in her series of elegant and extremely wearable body pieces, marrying silver, Tasmanian woods and rubber.
