Zoophite: jewellery by Sydney-based Gabriella Hirst

There is something unreal about Gabriella Hirst’s jewellery. An emerging Sydney artist, Hirst produces exceptionally delicate handmade jewellery and ‘crownettes’ inspired by marine life. They’re not cast or molded, but sculpted from polymer clay into spiky crystals in pale, carnivalesque pastels. They can’t be reproduced, only treasured. The age of mechanical reproduction has again given birth to a new appreciation of the one-off, hand-rendered object.

INVITE: 6 Aussie artists will turn Sydney's aMBUSH Gallery into a giant canvas for a night!

We've assembled a group of talented young creatives and armed them each with a new Microsoft Surface Pro 4 or Microsoft Surface Book on which to create an original piece of art. The big reveal of these works will take place on December 10 at an immersive event at Sydney's aMBUSH Gallery. If you want to come along, let us know why here.
