the squid has a mexican moustache…
By Lisa Furno

6 June - 7 July

Gray Street Workshop Gallery


Curious title…intriguing show…Gray Street Workshop Gallery is pleased to invite you to an exhibition of vibrant new work made from old things by Lisa Furno.

For the past six months Lisa Furno has been collecting discarded plastic toys, electrical parts, off cuts, box strapping and knick-knacks and then subjecting them to experiments with the heat gun, shrink wrap and jewellers saw to create this dazzling collection of new jewellery.

The materials Lisa has gathered for her work are all pre-loved and recycled, collected from friends, op-shops, hard rubbish and the street and laneways of Adelaide and then transformed into an explosive and eclectic array of wearable works or art…brooches, neckpieces and earrings.

This is jewellery for the adventurous and discerning wearer… its playful contemporary jewellery with plenty of zest and zing.

the squid has a mexican moustache…will be opened on Thursday 6 July by Sydney based jeweller Mark Vaarwark – Mark is well known for recycling plastic bags and polystyrene foam boxes into refined and stylish jewellery pieces.

Mark will be talking about his work and practice on Friday 7 July at Gray Street Workshop.

Fox Creek wines proudly sponsors Gray Street Workshop’s exhibition program.
