as we mentioned yesterday, we've been out and about checking out the graduate exhibitions around melbourne. So far we've managed the RMIT gold and silversmithing and third year RMIT fashion shows, and found some top items along the way.
First cut is this delicious acordian pleated jacket which used an incredibly well planned sequence of hand cut fusing to construct the pleating...
The second was this rain-jacket by Kara Turner who had constructed her garment from heat and pressure treated recylced plastic shopping bags. A sophisticated and ingenius nod to climate change.
On the jewellery tip, we were very taken with the wooden stylings of Natalia Miloz-Pierkarska who managed to hit just the right notes with her combination of found object, oxidised copper and timber in her "Fortunatus Altisis, as well as her "Wind up Bird" in silver, wood, enamel, copper, brass and paint.
keep watching people we've still got NMIT and Monash to go!!
