This work was made as part of Arbor's annual exhibition in 2017 with the theme Australiana.
Artist Statement: Australia is a vast landscape - a sunburnt country. It is shaped by wind water and time. Australia has always been impacted by fire - from the Aboriginal culture of cultivation and renewal to more modern experiences of devastation and loss.These pieces and elements are unique to the Australian experience. Similarly; Mookaite is a stone found only in Australia - these stones were mined by Australians and cut by Australians. These jewellery pieces were made in Australia by an Australian, using Australian companies. The collaboration on these pieces has a unique involvement - one of involvement of a number of different individuals, but from different backgrounds and approaches to life and the world. However, no matter how different the people involved seem, nor how different these stones appear to each other - deep down we are all the same; uniquely Australian.
This ring is made from sterling silver and Mookaite. The stone measures 3.5cm by 2.5cm and is a size P.
