For over 40 years, Marian Hosking has interpreted the Australian landscape through silver jewellery and vessel work. Her practice focuses upon the embodiment of the personal meaning of place and landscape in intimate objects, with work characterised by research into the history, languages and processes of jewellery and silversmithing. In particular, Hosking explores the potential for the miniature to act as a ‘souvenir’ or paradigm for such ideas.
