Changing the scale of an object can alter its function completely. What happens to a piece of jewellery when you increase its size 10 fold? ‘Scale Up’ is an inquiry by two jewellers into the subtleties of design and what it takes to go bigger. Swapping miniature for larger scale, Victoria Mason and Ewan Tremellen are using their goldsmithing skills, re-established into bronze casting & stonework. This updated approach amplifies the rule they are familiar with in jewellery - that form follows function and wearing heavy earrings can hurt.
In its new role, these larger-scale jewellery pieces cease to be wearable and instead hold their own space as sculptures within a different set of rules. ‘Scale Up’ honours the traditions of the jewellery bench and takes them to new, unexplored heights.

Salt Reef by VG Fitzmaurice
To appreciate the Australian landscape you need to embrace its extremes.
The lush can be burnt, the dry can flood and what is colourful can soon
be bleached. ‘Deadly Divine’ is an exploration of the transient beauty
that we see all around us, through the perspective of VG Fitzmaurice, a
proud Wurundjeri man. With respect to his heritage, Vegas incorporates
traditional symbolism with street art to tell his own story, his own way.

‘Preliminary Structures’ presents seven contemporary makers and designers working in moulding and casting techniques across ceramic and glass disciplines. The exhibitors combine studio and industrial making methods to create work that experiments with modularity, materiality, repetition, surface and form.
The works explore new ideas and concerns as investigated through mould making processes, and reflect on craft’s complicated relationship to industry, sculpture, design and architecture. The exhibition challenges preconceived ideas of industrial perfection and replication, and repositions these preliminary structures for their craftsmanship and artform.

Christina Darras is dynamic Melbourne artist of Athenian Greek origin. Her joyful exploration of various mediums allows her work to take various forms be it jewellery, paintings, embroidery or installations. Above all, Christina’s work evokes feelings of inquisitive optimism. This collection of artworks forms part of her ‘one thing a day’ ethos that happened to coincide with the harsh but necessary Melbourne lock-down. Through this trying time, Christina explored the idea of how isolation could lead to a perceived loss of identity. Her pared-back figures demonstrate the basic needs that we had - to connect with others through touch and to return to a life that was familiar. A restrained palate of peach and aqua strengthens this message.

Bec Smith is a Melbourne-based painter, designer and visual storyteller. Inner Mechanics is Bec's 5th solo exhibition and Creo's inaugural show. The works in this exhibition address Bec's 'before and after' feelings of the Melbourne lock-down as they relate to Jungian analysis and knowledge of the self - the ego, the persona and the shadow.
