'Home Sweet Home'

"Spending time away from home recently has helped me develop some different ideas... One has been to investigate and use things in my immediate surrounds as starting points for new work.

'Fun with Flax' has manifested because I have a bush directly outside my kitchen window... it's in my face every day and I see it change through the seasons.

In summer, its earthy colours shift and mingle sometimes with a backdrop of bright washing on my clothesline... Tuis visit intermittently, adding a unique New Zealand touch to the palette. In winter, spent pods on high stalks flutter and dance in the wind.

These 'Fun with Flax' pieces have been made with found plastics, tin, resin, synthetic/linen threads and sterling silver. Coming to grips with new concepts and materials isn't always easy, but its good fun, plus, an added bonus if it works!"
Ross Malcolm, 2011

Malcolm left a career in construction to pursue his interest in contemporary jewellery, first studying then teaching at Manukau Institute of Technology. The jeweller's technical innovations result from comprehensive explorations into the possibilties of his chosen materials.
