Raised in Darwin, Kath Inglis moved to Adelaide to study contemporary jewellery. After graduating from the South Australian School of Art in 2000, Inglis continued to develop her practice by working from a number of studios, including the renowned Gray Street Workshop and, as a Design Associate, at JamFactory Metal Design Studio.
In 2005, Inglis partnered with Naomi Schwartz, to establish soda and rhyme│jewellery design studio. A combination workshop, retail and gallery space, soda and rhyme features exhibitions of small scale objects and contemporary jewellery.
Inglis’ signature works are wearable pieces constructed from coloured and hand carved PVC. Inspired and intuitive patterns are cut into the surface of the plastic, transforming this seemingly ordinary material into something precious.
Inglis’ practice is multi-faceted and includes frequent exhibitions in national and international galleries, large scale collaborative public art projects and lecturing in jewellery at the University of South Australia.

Hey Kath, oh yeah, I have seen your work many a place and am truly impressed by your awesomeness! I was just talking about your work with Carmel o Neill? Friend of your mums and art teacher at Darwin High? Thanks for being so kind about my feeble fumblings! I think I would give small body parts for one of your lamps!
