Lyn Balzer and Tony Perkins are photographers and jewelers based between Sydney and Byron Bay. Each piece is laboriously handmade by the two of them in the studio: including these extraordinary masks. They have an unusual strength to them, they are made from frayed and worn cloth, but feel surprisingly sturdy in their tightly woven construction.
There is an interview with Lyn and Tony over here. I have been coveting these jewels for some time, so it is wonderful to have some of them in the show. If you can't get to the gallery, they are available here. There is also a sneaky peak at their home and studio here.
