Jewellery making with Rui Kikuchi - Talk and Demonstration

  • The Japan Foundation, Sydney (map)

Kyoto-based Rui Kikuchi combines refuse (PET bottles and nails) with precious metals in her contemporary jewellery designs. With organic imagery, her choice of materials references our consumption of natural resources and imposition of synthetic materials on the environment. The delicate craftship of Kikuchi’s metalwork offers the designer opportunities for technical and material exploration, as seen in the spectrum of her experimental and fine jewellery practice.

In this event, Kikuchi will talk about her practice and demonstrate her jewellery making techniques.
