Emma Bugg’s exhibition is a creative investigation into concrete, expressed through the form of jewellery. It explores the material of concrete and the perceived value of jewellery by using an unexpected material not commonly associated with the body.

The work is experimental – focusing on achieving interesting surface textures and forms. There is a rawness to the materials embedded in the concrete, including horse hair, brick, blue metal, Tasmanian abalone shell and iron.

The artist’s experimental jewellery and small-scale sculptural works have been created during a development grant funded by Arts Tasmania with a focus on material exploration. This exhibition signifies a sidestep from Emma’s commercial practice to expand her skills and research innovative ways to work with concrete.
