The stone and the maker presented by @unknownuserproject

  • ONLINE 315 Elizabeth St Melbourne, VIC, 3000 Australia (map)

The 'unknownuserproject', an Instagram account, first launched at the 2014 Craft Cubed event. This online exhibition project was developed by Oriel Glennen as a way to connect with other makers she followed.........the global community of 'Unknown users'. This years exhibition sees a collaboration between Oriel and New Zealand jeweller, @jaxjewels Jacqueline Jacky Morren. Both makers appear to have many similarities in their approach to their practice and a strong preference for working with Jade. Jacqueline works with New Zealand Greenstone and Oriel with a form of Australian Jade, Nephrite, indigenous to her country of birth, Australia. This exhibition will run over 1 week with each artist having previously mailed 3 objects to each other from their respective environments. The objects will then be used to create jewellery and or/ small sculptural pieces.......resulting in 6 handcrafted items. These individually handcrafted pieces will be posted under the Unknownuser project handle on Instagram, 1 piece per day over a period of 6 days.
