Katherine Hubble — 'Hatchery Strand Series', 2019 - 2021


"Hatchery Strand Series was made upon my return to Melbourne after my fieldwork in Broome where I visited Willie Creek pearl farm. Here, I experienced pearl hatchery firsthand and learnt about Willie Creek farm's cultivation methods. This series is informed by this experience and all that I saw in the hatchery."

Katherine Hubble is an art jeweller who investigates new ways of looking at traditional jewellery. She uses a combination of industrial processes and gold & silversmithing methods to challenge notions of material preciousness. Central to her practice is vacuum forming an industrial technique she employs to reimagine one of the most traditional ornamental craft motifs, the shell.

Hubble was part of The Marzee International Graduate Show, Netherlands, 2022 and Melbourne Now for NGV Australia, 2023. She completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) at RMIT in 2017 and a Master of Fine Art, RMIT, 2022.
