In May this year, Blanche Tilden's major survey exhibition 'Ripple Effect' opened at Geelong Gallery in Victoria. Curated by Gallery Director and CEO Jason Smith, this exhibition marks 25 years of Blanche's remarkable practice. The exhibition is now touring to capital cities and regional centres in Australia until 2023.
A key aspect of Blanche's career has always been design production. Though major works grace the collections of museums in Australia and the US, it is pieces such as the 'Median' bracelet and the 'Miniature' ring that have become staples of the Australian design canon, worn by hundreds of people every day.
This range of new production works - some entirely new, some revisiting important early works - reveals Blanche's keen design mind working at the height of its powers. From accessible to high end, there's something here for every lover of jewellery and design excellence.
