Handmade powder coated nickel silver and sterling silver earrings by Vicki Mason.
Vicki Mason’s jewellery practice is predominantly research based. She’s interested in unpacking our relationship(s) with plants. Utilising plants as symbols/motifs she tells stories about life in Australia today while also building knowledge and awareness about the natural world in a technologically focused age.
Plants native to Australia, exotic plants, plant forms found in the fine/decorative arts and plants used in gardens are just some sources referenced and researched. Each conceptual investigation leads to discrete bodies and series of works. These include one-of-a-kind works and limited edition works for exhibition as well as collections of production work.
