Featured Artist: Lyn & Tony
What inspires you?
Besides jewellery making, what medium do you enjoy working with?
Our jewellery developed as an extension of our art photography, which we have been exhibiting internationally for 10 years or more. Our photography explores the contrast of the fragility of the body against the harsh extremes of the Australian landscape.
Tell us a bit about your studio space...
If you could peek inside the studio of any artist, designer or craftsmen (alive or dead) who would it be?
We are very interested in the aesthetics of the french Art Nouveau movement and the influence of the natural world on the development of their art, so the studios of the sculptor Rodin, the jeweller Rene Lalique & the glass/ceramic artist Emile Galle would be amazing to see.
What’s next for you and your practice?
We are excited to have discovered some beautiful Australian opals to work with for upcoming jewellery pieces & we are looking forward to our first photographic show in Tokyo, later this year. We are also completing a photographic book project that we have been working on for a few years now, so its going busy!
