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 up and generally mistreating silver. I like silver with a past.
Exhibitors have been invited from a wide range of disciplines including jewellery, ceramics, wood, glass and textiles. The following members of the Society have been invited to participate in the exhibition. Michael Ripoll – Jewellery, Val Aked – Jewellery, Regina Krawts – Bead jewellery, Alan Ussher – Glass, Neville Wostear – Wood, Martha Catano – Textile pictures, Jane Hinde – Textile (Surface Design), Mary Hawkins – Weaving, Nanette Goodsell – Woven baskets, Pat Haywood - Ceramics, Glen Doyle – Wire sculpture, Isabel Correa – Nanduti, Helen MacRitchie – Felt, Jude Skeers – Knitting. Sydney based Jane Hinde, one of the exhibitors, and the current President of The Society of Arts and Crafts NSW will attend the opening on Sunday October 26th.
