    Asha Nicholas
    This work has evolved from time spent as both Jeweller and Architect. Each piece speaks of a keen interest in structural composition and material process, and a fascination with detail and patina. The compositions in this current work draw influence from humanity's interactions with the crust of the earth. Ideas of extraction and excavation are explored, both in form and technique, to create fragments taken from this process, and to reveal what can be seen as a delicate beauty in simple rawness. These are works to be viewed and to be worn.

    Asha Nicholas is a Jeweller and Architect, having completed a Masters of Architecture in 2005 and an Advanced Diploma of Engineering (Jewellery) at NMIT, in 2011. She was awarded the John Lazos Best Overall Student 2011 and the NMIT Outstanding Student of the Engineering Faculty 2011. In 2013, Asha was selected as a finalist to exhibit in the Contemporary Australian Silver & Metalwork Award, and is a recent recipient of the ArtStart grant from the Australia Council.
