Come sculpt the night away with Jess Blak! In this class you will learn the basics of designing and sculpting a lost wax cast ring. You will create your own designs with the use of carving tools, heating wands, fire and your hands! This is a great way to engage with the materials Jess uses to craft her designs, and an introduction to the processes involved in making silversmithed jewellery.
Jess Blak is an Australian contemporary silversmith with an appreciation for traditional craftsmanship and ethical practices. Her organic approach to creating balances repetition and authenticity. Her collections are inspired by the juxtaposition of nature and the built environment. Jess’ style of making emulates textures found in ruins and shipwrecks, inspired by such artefacts and their ability to recall stories lost and the mystery of times past. The treatment of the silver suggests time has manipulated the surface leaving it organic and completely unpredictable, beautifying the unexpected nature of discovery.
