Intro
Trees frame our quotidian existence acting as welcome reminders of the organic world in our predominantly hard surfaced city environments. Cultivating a sense of custodianship for city trees means fostering an awareness of their importance and value in the urban landscape.

Artist list

Vicki Mason
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.

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.

I combine flexible pedestrian plastics (upholstery and stationery remnants), textile processes and materials alongside metal and metal techniques to create a cross media/material discourse that works across traditional classifications of what jewellery and textiles should be.
