I started making jewellery when I was younger. I always used lots of found objects and materials that might have a different use. Then I would start to use that material and the pieces would evolve from there.
Hamish Munro is an artist who makes transformations happen. He gleans materials that are meant for one purpose and develops fresh ways of working with them, opening our eyes to new possibilities. Like any great innovator, Munro is able to discover a new life for these materials as he stretches, wraps, cuts and joins, pushing their limits.
Hamish holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in Sculpture and Spatial Practice from the Victorian College of the Arts. His creative practice is diverse, moving between sculpture and wearable works, with a more recent focus on fine jewellery. In 2016 he designed and collaborated on a large retail space in Shanghai. He has participated in four exhibitions at Pieces of Eight Gallery.
