Intro
Vicki Mason has been wearing jewellery since she was two and making it since she was 6 or 7. Born in New Zealand she lives and works in Melbourne, Australia. She completed her undergraduate studies in New Zealand and her masters degree (Research) in Australia at ANU. She teaches, exhibits both nationally and internationally, likes to write and has works in both public and private collections. Mason has received a variety of awards and prizes, most recently she was awarded the Australia Council for the Arts Barcelona studio residency.
 

Statement

Making jewellery fulfils a need I have to create objects that can be worn, that hold special meanings 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 allowing me to explore notions of place, belonging and the life cycle. Plants native to Australia, exotic plants, plant forms found in the fine/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’m interested in cross media/material discourses and utilising processes/techniques that range from the low tech and domestic through to the industrial.
