Lyn & Tony
Our work celebrates the spirit of the artisan and the unique qualities of handmade objects created using natural materials. There is a freeness that still exists in Australia, and we embrace the spirit of experimentation in our objects and jewellery.
Lyn Balzer and Tony Perkins are Australian born artists who live and work between Sydney and Byron Bay. Working together in a relationship that is almost symbiotic, their handmade jewellery and objects travel between art, design and fashion. Each piece is of a limited edition and meticulously handmade in their studios. Finely worked natural stones, combined with environmentally respectful materials such as kangaroo leather ensures each piece is imbued with integrity and high-end quality. Possessing a strong commitment to the finest quality materials combined in unexpected combinations, their pieces can be found across a range of international stockists such as Colette in Paris.
In 2016 they presented 'Dark Matter' at Pieces of Eight Gallery, an exploration of the treatment of traditional techniques gone Brutalist.
