Porcelain + Jewellery = Julie Holmes

Jeweller Julie Holmes has been sensitive to the timeless, earthy qualities of clay and the making possibilities inherent in the material.
Her porcelain creations are treated as 'found' objects but one is very aware that they have been 'made' by Julie to be a consistent and beautiful material that seems precious and rare.
These 'found' remnants have a sense of being uncovered in archaeological digs, collected along a beach or skeletal remains. 
This porcelain exploits the ease of creating texture & imprint and the ability to create holes for attachment & wearing. 




It's a shame there are no images of the fittings for these brooches as they are incredible.





Give it up for Margaret - an astounding collection of contemporary ceramics

 Chapter House Gallery
1-31 May 2015


Stumbled upon a new-ish public art space Chapter House Gallery off Flinders Lane.
A wonderful 'Melbourne-lanes' experience to see a selection of the very wonderful Margaret Lawrence's ceramics collection. 
Read here about Margaret's generous, philanthropic life being celebrated in a program of events created by VCA called Give it Up For Margaret
Also this in The Age. 
The exhibition has been sensitively curated by Tina Lee and spans across three windows giving a sense of Margaret's breadth of collection and a feeling of how her home might have felt with shelves jam-packed with work.
