ORMOLU


Ormolu is a metaphorical as much as actual fusion of fine crafting skills, to make precious things inspired by the humble objects of everyday life.

In an inspired contemporary interpretation of Ormolu, silversmith Julie Blyfield and ceramicist Kirsten Coelho have collaborated to create a suite of porcelain containers with intricate silver lids and an accompanying collection of jewellery.

The-Golden-Calf.jpg

THE GOLDEN
CALF


Ceramic artist Andrei Davidoff presents a series of vessels that transform mundane utilitarian forms into objects of ominous intent. Guided by the Biblical tale of the Golden Calf, a false idol deemed unworthy of worship, Davidoff investigates the tension between an object’s high art cultural value and its everyday social.
