Taë Schmeisser studied Visual Arts Glass at the Australian National University, before expanding her material vocabulary in ceramics, and gold + silversmithing in Melbourne and overseas. Her studies took her to the Toyama Institute of Glass Art (TIGA) and Kyoto Seika University (both in Japan), and in 2009 she was awarded Artist in Residence at The Skopelos Art Foundation (Skopart), Greece. In 2008 Taë won the e.g. etal graduate award, and has been exhibiting her work nationally since 2002. In 2012, Taë launched her seasonal jewellery label bëuy (pronounced boy), offering unique and affordable collections that explore the joy of colour and diverse materials and is now stocked in over 50 stores in Australia and internationally. Taë’s fine Art jewellery practice uses precious metals and Diamonds and Sapphires to explore historical aesthetics in jewellery and to examine, abstract and miniaturize the often overlooked everyday items and scenes. All Taë Schmeisser and bëuy works are designed and handcrafted with affection and pride in Melbourne, Australia.
