[col3] Biography

Vicki Mason is a Melbourne-based contemporary jeweller originally from New Zealand.
“Making jewellery fulfils a need I have to create objects that hold special meanings. These objects can be worn and can potentially provoke in the wearer and viewer a need for a response or interaction of some kind. A dialogue is opened up – jewellery then acts as a portable tool for the communication of ideas”.

[col3] Work

“My work references my passion for plants as subject. I’m interested in notions of place, belonging and the life cycle and I use plants as metaphors to represent these ideas. Plants native to Australia, exotic plants, plant forms found in the fine and decorative arts and plants used in gardens are just some sources referenced and researched. Botanical motifs have a long history within jewellery’s imagery so are a rich source for reinterpretation and investigation”. [/col3]
