The Graceful Inner Islands reflect on our impermanence and the hidden beauty within. Porous fragments of hand carved cancellous bone are transformed into precious metal according to the principles of wabi-sabi. Each piece is frozen in a moment of decay or emerging from nothingness.

Comprising jewellery and silverware, an initial collection of 35 pieces were displayed at Wonky in Melbourne's Tinning Street Presents Gallery on July 14-24, 2016.

Wonky was a group show curated by Sophia Cai and Caitlin Shearer inspired by the principles of wabi-sabi – a Japanese aesthetic that celebrates the imperfect and the transient. Taking this idea as a starting point, Wonky celebrated unpredictability and impermanence, both in art and in life.
