Cultural Exchange Program

The first thing you should do is download the Craft Cubed Festival brochure from the Craft website. There is so much on even we are a little overwhelmed. Of course the ladies of HML love a collaboration so we are really thrilled to see the new show at  E.G Etal  called How the Light Gets In

Emma Grace and Clare James

The wonderful Melbourne jeweller Emma Grace has created a series of pieces and then bravely handed them over to different artists with an invitation to alter, adapt and re-imagine the work using their on aesthetic and skill sets.

Emma Grace & Chaco Kato
Emma left them one single clue: "There's a crack, a crack in everything, that's how the light gets it' by Leonard Cohen. What did the artists make of that I wonder? It made me consider negative space, optimism, growth. This is the kind of show that makes me want to get all the artists in one room so I can barrage them with questions. 

Emma Grace and Nicholas Jones
Our favourite thing about the project is that all the pieces started at the bench of one maker, congratulations to all involved especially the talented Emma Grace! RAMONA

How the Light Gets In is on at EG Etal as part of the Craft Cubed Festival and runs until August 18

Have popped this one in the diary! Especially love the look of the pieces in the first photo - that necklace looks amazing.
