Make It: Tools, Techniques and Time

I’m currently featured in a show at artisan in Brisbane that’s for the makers and the people who love seeing the process of making and the tools craftspeople use. This little video touches on some of the tools and techniques I use in my practice - thanks for including me artisan!

Tools are the key to understanding humanity. As a society develops, so too does its use of tools. We’re wholly dependent on them, and use them from each moment to the next. Whether you’re popping in a nail, stitching up a hole, or just tightening a few bolts, thousands of years of human evolution has gone into what you’re holding. Tools have been a vital part of this human experience.   

Make It: Tools, Technique and Time reveals the tools that six diverse artists use in their practice and how these are utilised in their craft. As well as displaying the artist’s products, this exhibition places the emphasis on the time, tools and techniques that go into each hand-crafted product. Featuring behind the scenes videos that highlight the experience of the artists working in their studios, you will leave with an insight into the processes and the intention behind the making. 

Exhibiting artists include:

Adele Outteridge -  Book artist and printmaking

Phillip Piperides  - Bronze sculptor

Jane du Rand - Mosaic and ceramics

Carol Russell  - Wood carving

Kenji Uranishi - Ceramics and sculpture 

Jarred Wright - Scientific glass blowing
