METAL WORK | MIXED MEDIA ARTIST | SCULPTOR
Working in silversmithing and mixed media after twenty five years as a ceramic artist opened opportunities for Penny to incorporate traditional jewellery making methods combined with innovative uses of found objects including skins, bones, scales and old aluminium lids. Her jewellery is made from recycled sterling silver and sometimes with unwanted objects to add an interest for the wearer. Her sculptural practice is informed by contemporary issues. After completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2012, Penny moved to Doonan where she works as a maker of silver jewellery and small sculpture.
