Containment 2016

Lathe Turned Aluminium, Anodised

containmentdetail.jpg

I am intrigued and fascinated by aluminium and the way it acts when it's molten; it has been an ongoing obsession for a few years. This series emerged from my desire to control this process and has manifested in neckpieces that enclose rough landscapes within smooth machined surfaces.

Faisua (Giant Clam) Ring

I have always had an obsession with the ocean - my twelve year old self wanted to be a marine biologist. Though my career path has gone in a different direction, my love for the beauty that exists in the ocean and our coral reefs has not changed. 

Rings and matching studs are available for purchase through JamFactory (Adelaide).

Available online soon!

This project was the result of a workshop at The JamFactory with artists in residence, Guy Keulemans and Kyoko Hashimoto that took place in April, 2015.

"Interested in the material relationships of commitment rings, Emma proposes a system in which the woman’s ring is cut from the man’s ring, and are both cut from the same blank. The irregular line of the saw mark binds the two rings together conceptually and, when it’s rough surface rubs against the skin, reminds of the commitment to marriage."

Finite series

sterling silver, bronze

Excerpt from exhibition statement for Fluid Moments (2014): 

A moment is an instant in time; it is an infinitesimal and indefinite encounter with an object, a phenomenon, a situation, a being. These moments can be significant, life changing things or they can be experienced in brief encounters in a person’s everyday life. Moments are therefore, in essence, fluid; they are short-lived, transient connections made with objects which exist for only a few seconds.

Fluid Moments is an exhibition which explores seven emerging artists’ various approaches to the concept that there is a certain changeability and fluctuation in these ephemeral experiences and interactions. Their artworks become expressions and interpretations of these moments, bringing permanence to the ideas and encounters experienced by each person.

Emma Field investigates Dewey’s notion that an artist instinctively knows when the next line, shape or brushstroke continues and adds to the layers of an artwork or breaks and disrupts the flow. Using wax, which is then cast, she has used simple geometric shapes to explore the intuitive way that the mind connects ideas and thoughts whilst making.

Postcard holder, copper

Zoe Grigoris and I designed and created this postcard holder for Sean's Kitchen at Adelaide Casino at the beginning of 2016.

Handmade from copper, it will develop a natural patina over time.

Pop in to see it hanging in the entrance to the restaurant!

Life noise/Death silence, 2013

aluminium

Freud believed that we have two basic instincts: Eros, the life drive and the death drive. He insists that neither one of these instincts is less essential then the other and that the phenomena of life arises from the concurrent or mutually opposing action of both.

Eros and the death drive are not opposites; one is simply not the other. Neither is one ‘good’ or the other ‘bad.’ They stimulate and refresh each other in a continuous feedback loop of interplay and interaction. My aim was to investigate these complex, deeply seeded instincts which we have been continuously (if unconsciously) trying to satisfy and balance since birth.
