Alice Potter – Speaking In Plumes
3 March – 21 March 2015
Celebration Drinks – Saturday 7th March 2015, 4-6pm
Colour: Speaking In Plumes is a collection of new jewellery pieces centred around the colour combinations different species of birds display in their feathers. Having researched many species of colourful birds, as well as having photographed hundreds of taxidermied specimens at the South Australian Museum Science Centre’s Ornithology collection, Potter whittled her collection down to around 70 species to focus the exhibition on. Each of these pieces embodies a specific species of bird, taking the colours from their feathers and reinterpreting these within the jewellery works.
