Event Details

An exhibition of contemporary steel art by a selected range of jewellery and object makers, curated by Melbourne artist Sarah Heyward.


The use of steel in contemporary jewellery and object practice is intriguing. While traditionally used for manufacturing purposes, steel is seductive with a beautiful luster and sheen. Investigations into industrial landscapes, enamel on steel, heat treatment methods, and the repurposed object are all areas in which notable makers have been exploring and engaging with this material within their practice.


This exhibition explores themes around fluidity and strength in our everyday lives. The push and pull of our environment, both in the natural world and political sphere, the forces, which make us feel both fragile and insignificant but also powerful and resilient. At a time where we face potential environmental catastrophes, nature – in which many artists find inspiration – reminds us how merciless the earth’s forces can be. This exhibition hopes to act as a celebration of steel as a material and also the investigations we undertake to make the material speak.
