Beyond Metal: Contemporary Australian Jewellery and Holloware

Beyond Metal showcases the work of 27 of Australia’s finest jewellery and holloware practitioners.

Australia’s jewellery and holloware combines the raw aesthetic of the natural, the coarse, and the recycled, with the very clean modern lines of highly executed design. Beyond Metal showcases the work of 27 of Australia’s finest practitioners, taking us through a range of materials from precious metals to anodised aluminium, pearl buttons to embroidered stainless steel wire, twigs and beeswax to feathers and plastics. It is a dynamic show that demonstrates not just the elegant designs, but also the fine craftsmanship of artists including Carlier Makigawa, Simon Cottrell, Marian Hosking, Rowena Gough, Susan Cohn, Robert Foster, and Stephen Gallagher.

Beyond Metal has toured internationally to Chennai, New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur to great acclaim.
