Often, I catch myself examining my surroundings. Swiftly. Impulsively. Then I decide whether the shapes and shadows I observe are they way I like them to be.
Perfecting and observing line is, and has always been, a powerful desire. From start to finish, I become obsessed with creating wearables that hold (in my eyes) faultless profiles, flawless silhouettes, unspoilt edges and seamless curves.
Through my questioning and exploration of line comes an instinctive and somewhat effortless response to space. Over the past three years, I have found myself constantly seeking to generate jewellery that has considered positive and negative space; both on and off the body.
Thanks, Marina! So nice to hear from you. I think of my wire forms as 3D drawings. You mentioned my black and white detail shot of Hanging Sculpture 4. Eliminating color allows the line, shape, and space qualities to be prominent. Your images in B&W are wonderful!

This is Margaret Tabone from Gallery Adagio in Glebe. I see you have had some great comments from Phill Mason who I have known for many years and is a brilliant jeweller/artist in his own right. Your work is lovely Marina so if you are ever after an outlet please be in contact. I generally work from the gallery Thurs, Fri & Saturdays and the phone number is 9552 2833 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Glad to be friends...
It's really hectic down here in Hobart at the moment: the Taste of Tasmania food and wine fest, in conjunction with the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, has just ended, and MOFO 2010 is about to commence for a fortnight (see www.mofo.net.au )
I'll have to diet after all this indulgence...
Congratulations on your work, Marina. It's all nicely resolved and clean, and such lines are the most difficult to achieve...
