So, our assessment is over (hello again, blog, friends, family! I'll post pictures of new work as I get the photos and pieces sorted out a bit), and life is flooding back to the weary body and mind again, slowly but surely.

It's always a really emotional time for me, the last day of uni, from the culmination of strong energies and the notion of something ending. But hey, only four months, seven days and thirteen hours since we can go back again!! Hehe! Thank you for everyone who lended tissues and warm hands during the tearful afternoon. I love you guys, and can't wait to be making things together throughout the summer : )

But the end is not at hand yet really, the end of year exhibition looming just around the corner. Still heaps to do, but it will be great! This year we have a greatest number of students involved for a long time, 31 all together, so should be an interesting and varied collection of pieces.

Here's our invite, I designed it and am very happy about how it turned out. Click on the image if you want a clearer / larger view. We wanted something graphic this year and thought that a little playful DIY would not go amiss (and wait for our fabulous plinths that have been designed and made by our exhibition design team, too!). The image also speaks of our theme – anything can be found in translation, the process, in discovering new ways of doing things, in looking at the world from a different angle. Jewellery can be anything, anywhere …

Welcome to our opening on next Wednesday, please find all the info below.
More soon, nice to be back.

Our press release:

Found in Translation showcases the jewellery and hollowware made by first and second year students who are currently studying Gold and Silversmithing in the School of Art at RMIT University. The title of the exhibition reflects the ever-constant battle these developing artists wage in their endeavour to translate material and concept into object, whilst finding their individual voices within a thriving local and international gold and silversmithing community. Please join the students in celebrating the outcome of (many) hours of labor involving flaming torches, red-hot kilns and filed fingertips during this highlight of the School of Art Gallery exhibition calendar.
