Lauralai Wilson — 'Dusk' Neckpiece
Graduating from Gold and Silversmithing at RMIT in 2016 and recipient of the 2018 Maggie Fairweather residency at RMIT, Lauralai’s practice is led by considered explorations of material. Working with stone, sand, silicone and silver alongside other adaptations of raw minerals and found objects, Lauralai creates alterations of surface and form through chemical synthesis.
Her work aims to dispel the lacklustre nature of routine, to provide the viewer or wearer with a temporary escapism and a connection to the otherworld present in their psyche, imagination or memory.
Materials: silicone, mica pigment, polyester, hand carved mussel shell
