Blanche Tilden—Ripple Effect: a 25 year survey catalogue launch
Susan Cohn at the Blanche Tilden—Ripple Effect: a 25 year survey catalogue launch, held at Geelong Gallery on Saturday 31 July 2021.
This 25 year survey of the work of Melbourne-based jeweller and maker Blanche Tilden revealed her remarkable and critically acclaimed practice. Tilden has a unique approach to her materials, in particular, glass, which she explores both as a material for jewellery making and deploys as a metaphor for the connections between making, industry, the wearable object and the body. Her fascination with mechanical devices, fuelled by a desire to understand how things work, continually inspires her work.
