Panorama

Julie Blyfield

03 Feb 2016 - 27 Feb 2016

Julie Blyfield’s work is inspired by the botanical landscape in Australia. She interprets this in metal using the techniques of ‘metal raising’ and ‘chasing’. Julie enjoys exploring and collecting plant specimens from the rich and diverse environment her homeland offers, from places such as the Simpson Desert in the north of South Australia and further south around the coast of Kangaroo Island. She works with both pure silver and sterling silver, her “preferred choice of material”, and textures the surface to create individual pieces of jewellery, vessels and also more sculptural pieces. 

“During the making process, I enjoy the way the metal ‘moves and shifts’ in almost unpredictable ways to create the organic forms which shimmer with the silver textures or colours derived from nature.”
