Susan Frisch

Susan graduated from Melbourne's NMIT with an Advanced Diploma in Gold and Silversmithing in 2007.

Since completing her jewellery studies she has finished a NEIS Small Business Management Course at RMIT and established her own arts practice.

Now based in Regional Victoria, it's from her home based studio that she creates her handcrafted jewellery from both metal and glass and using natures colours, textures and shapes as her inspiration.

Susan has exhibited work both locally and nationally. She currently has work in a number of galleries interstate as well as Melbourne and Regional Victoria.

Artist Statement:
There is an old American Native Indian proverb that goes something like, treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents but borrowed from your children.

Our Australian landscape is rugged yet fragile, and we, as well as future generations have much to lose if what remains is not preserved. It is in this context that I base my practice.

My work captures a small piece of a larger picture, a response to what is truly precious, of a moment in time that passes, but one that hopefully will not be lost forever.
