  MATERIAListic
Contemporary jewellery has embraced many natural and manmade materials over the years in the pursuit of artistic expression, often questioning many preconceived notions of intrinsic material value. This more objective analytical view of materials can result in some thought provoking and refreshing results. In February there was a jewellery symposium (Jemposium) held in Wellington discussing materials and ideas in contemporary jewellery. Having had some time to dwell on these themes we have invited a selection of jewellers whose work reflects some of these ideas and who clearly enjoy using and ’transforming’ materials as part of their creative process.

  Flowers and Fungus
LISA WEST
Most of the things that I make are influenced by the flora and fauna around me and these pieces are a continuation of this. Flowers Fungus is loosely based on real flowers and actual plants but with a large element of artistic license thrown in. The use of unprocessed materials such as shell, stone and fine gold also influences what the finished piece might be. The distinctive curve of a shell may suggest one thing; the colour and patterns on a lump of stone might be reminiscent of something else.

  Birds and Estuary Politics
BARBARA BLEWMAN
Near where I live in Mapua, beneath a veneer of beauty, lies the most contaminated soil in the country. Birds and Estuary Politics fuses the beauty and wildlife of the region with the stark reality of the toxic dump and the decontamination process currently underway. There is a sad irony that a pesticide factory operated for fifty-six years on the South Islands largest estuary, home to some of the most unique birds in the world. It is the coming to terms with these aspects of my immediate environment that has motivated the creation of this work.
