Water with Bianca Mavrick
March 22, 7:30am - 9:00am AEST. Hosted at CUPO
part of a series on Water
Our March speaker’s story began in 2014, initially as an exploratory contemporary art jewellery practice. Now, Bianca Mavrick has developed her business Bianca Mavrick Jewellery into an internationally recognised jewellery label. Bianca’s work eschews typical jewellery design archetypes to create work that is original, consciously crafted from her studio in Australia.
Her conceptual arts-and-craft aesthetic combines with signature industrial finishes and in-house artisan production to create statement jewellery imbued with symbolism and playful luxury.
Bianca’s work has a recognisable and distinct visual language of composite materials and sculptural plays on proportion. Her iconic bold motif forms and clever colour palettes create artful statements.
A trained contemporary jeweller, Bianca holds a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art (Jewellery and Small Objects). With a background in Industrial Design, she is known for pushing the boundaries of production beyond the precepts of traditional jewellery making.
It’s the main source of all life. The lifeblood element that makes up 60% of our bodies.
It’s the liquid that we don’t drink enough of, yet waste effortlessly.
It’s home to millions of species, mysteries, and undiscovered knowledge.
We know more about the stars in the sky than the depths of our oceans.
We can use it to save lives. If used foolishly, it can take lives.
We think there is an abundance, yet only one percent can be touched. If we don’t protect our waters, then what will happen to life?
