Kim Buck, Goldsmith, b. 1957.
“Hollowware is my comment on the perception of value in my trade. For generations, my trade has relied more on the monetary value of the materials than on artistic value. Many see jewellery and hollowware as investments in materials – gold, silver and precious stones. As an artist, I have used irony to distance myself from these mechanisms, insisting that the value of my works lies in their idea, design and execution.”
