Julie Blyfield: Panorama
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.
