Meet the Maker: Katie Stormonth is a contemporary jeweller based in Brisbane, Australia and was one of the founding members of Bench (a collective jewellery studio). She completed a Bachelor of Fine Art with Honours in 2011 and currently works as the technical officer at Queensland College of Art, Griffith University. As an early career artist she participates regularly in exhibitions locally, nationally and internationally. Her practice aims to expand the boundaries of wearable body adornment through experimentation of materials and forms. She constructs alluring arrangements of repetitious forms and painted surfaces, highlighting the patterns of bold and decorative chased line work, aiming to provoke the wearer to both see and feel the pieces.
