In other news (no restrictions here, it’s already been published 😉 ), I got the nod late yesterday from the JMGA in Perth. I’ll be delivering a paper at the upcoming biennial Jewellers and Metalsmiths Group of Australia Conference, and I’m in good company. A whole lot of good company as a matter of fact; the list is bursting at the seems with local and international talent. I do have to mention my friends though – Maureen Faye-Chauhan is also delivering a paper (ignore the misspelling of her name on the website), while Jin-Ah Jo is the subject of another. I’m organising a show to coincide with the conference too, loosely based on the idea of “Return”, but more details as it gets closer. I found the last conference in Adelaide in ’08 really motivating and inspiring, so for me the standard has been set (and there is no home-town pride on the line here at all… no way!)
It’s going to be a beauty!
