Sunggee Min - Silver Gumnut Black Pearl Earrings
Sunggee Min is a Melbourne based jewellery designer who works predominantly in silver and semi-precious stones, and by commission in gold. His contemplative practice draws from a background in Philosophy and Literature, as well as formal training in Jewellery and Product design from NMIT.
This nexus of three disciplines results in the purposeful use of natural materials, reconfigured by the casting process to become jewellery, but bearing the characteristics of the natural world from which they are derived. The simple clarity of nature as a reference point provides a strong and thoughtful basis for a new language of ornament clearly identifiable with Sunggee’s practice. The casting process used means that Sungee is able to make every item unique.
In his 9th year of practice, and with a studio based in Melbourne’s north, Sunggee is happy to work on individual pieces for clients, and in a variety of metals and stones, upon commission.
