Jewellers wanted for 2015 Exhibition

In 2015 selected exhibition themed Attitude As Form. A touring exhibition that will be shown first at the Queensland Collage of Arts and then at Gaffa Gallery to coincide with the Jewellers & Metalsmiths Group Australia Conference in Sydney.
This exhibition invites practitioners in the field of contemporary jewellery to create a visual response to the theme Attitude As Form. The theme of this exhibition comes from a speculation that contemporary jewellery practitioners have particular attitudes that help to shape the final form of their works and takes Lisbeth den Besten’s essays, Borderline Jewellery (2006) & The Golden Standard of Schmuckashau (2014) as the point of departure.…

The One Design Workshop in Perth gets Baubled!

Back at the start of last month, on the 9th of November to be exact, I facilitated a workshop at Contemporary Metal in Perth. The One Design exhibition, installed in the gallery at CM, had opened the previous Friday night and with it the timber iteration of my Clouds pattern had been put on display, fixed to the end wall.

For added interest, colour the wood surface to compliment your thread-colour…

One Design in Perth!

Hey Perth! I’m bringing the circus – my One Design exhibition – to meet the family in my birthplace. It’s gonna be huge! (Actually, it’s going to be as big as it was in Sydney and Melbourne, but believe me, that’s quite big enough ;) )

One Design, you say? Don’t know what I’m talking about? (How could you have missed it – it’s all I’ve been talking about for MONTHS!) Check out the…

Here's another way to celebrate the launch of my One Design collection at Contemporary Metal in Perth. Come along and try your hand at making a jewel or two to take home, using a timber version of the same components I used to make the whole show!

It’s taking place from 10am – 1pm on 9th of November at Contemporary Metal, Unit 4, 77-79 Howe St, Osborne Park, WA, which is next weekend, and I happen to know that there are still a couple of places left, so what are you waiting for?

Micahel Rippoll Metropolis -   Inspired by images from the Fritz Lang film these are a continuation of my exploration into anti-bling. I don't much like shiny, pristine highly-polished jewellery which shows no sign of being made by human hands. I make jewellery by torturing, beating…
