Katherine Wheeler

Castlemaine is a rural town in central Victoria, Australia and it’s home to today’s maker, Katherine Wheeler. With a Diploma of Fine Arts from RMIT (2003) and a bachelor of Fine Arts, Gold and silversmithing at RMIT (2007) works in precious metal, thread and porcelain. I love the otherworldliness of her pieces with their sea creature-like legs and tentacles (I’m pretty sure they must come alive at night in gallery display cases). And her porcelain pieces are nice as well. You can find out more about this maker here or check out her Instagram profile here.
