SUPERNOVA STUD EARRINGS - Heavenly Bodies
From the new collection - Heavenly Bodies
Eruptions of opalescent geology. Vivid translucent iridescent resin sprouting from an opaque desert-coloured base.
Hand-cast epoxy & polyurethane resin set on hand-made sterling silver posts.
Fairman’s 2018 Heavenly Bodies collection takes inspiration from the Australian desert colour palette of Coober Pedy opal mine and Lake Eyre and infuses it with composite mythologies of place.
Merging two of her resin casting methodologies, the collection presents a suite of clear iridescent crystalline forms that appear to sprout from opaque ochre earth.
"Opaline fossils of mysterious beasts of the central desert, an ancient inland sea. Horned pawed beasts that glimmer in the mirage of desert heat; lost on the edge of the horizon, the edge of knowing. Narwhals of the vast salt lakes. Saline burial grounds of an ocean that was, unfathomable and unreal. Composite mythologies of place; transplanted ideologies that bloom like crystals in red desert sand."
