Tuesday 4th October 2011

Katherine and Abby of Golden Ink Collaborative are sharing the process behind their new range of works, and have generously offered to giveaway one of their necklaces and bangles to two lucky readers! Leave a comment on any of this weeks posts before 10pm Thursday for your chance to win! The winners will be drawn randomly and announced on Friday. Thanks so much Katherine and Abby! – Jenny x

Some of Golden Ink’s brand new range!

As of late Katherine and I have been studiously working on a new series of ceramic home-wares and jewellery. We will be giving two of these pieces away! Keep reading for details…

For this new series we wanted to work on a concept that tied my printmaking background and knowledge together with Katherine’s more fluid and sculptural approach. Based on this concept we have created a way of using and creating specially hand carved printing plates to emboss the surface of our ceramic forms.

The early stages of creating Golden Ink pieces

The methods we have used in this series creates very tactile and sumptuous bespoke pieces. Another aesthetic we have bought to the pieces and explored was a more painterly one; to aid in our philosophy of creating one-off pieces, and to make visible our makers marks. Our new series of work brings bright splashes of colour via a fluid water-colour like effect.

You could win one of these! Just leave a comment before 10pm on Thursday to go in the draw to win!

These two elements combined have shaped our new body of work. Our bright spring pieces will be available shortly BUT two lucky readers will get the chance to win one of two special pieces before they are released.

We have recently released Season 2 of our our new watercolour range in our store, available here.

Other recent work ventures include exhibition work ‘Places and Spaces‘ at Cudgegong Gallery in regional NSW.

    These have become some of my favorite things. I love how they are as clean and simple as bone with hints of soft color. They almost remind of something you could find along the sea shore, like a piece of drift wood. They are really amazing and special. ::a::
