Crafted by hand each Secret Sharer is made from carefully selected Australian timber by Louiseann and Kristian King in Eganstown near Daylesford, Victoria.
Secret Sharer exists as both sculpture and container. Sized to contain rings, brooches, bangles, cuffs, cufflinks, etc. Each Secret Sharer is a unique and precious object.
Dr Louiseann King (nee Zahra-King) has an extensive making, exhibiting and curating background. She has exhibited for 20 years in solo and curated exhibitions, including major solo exhibitions at Craft Victoria and Object. Her work explores issues pertaining to the environment, time, memory, ritual and making. Louiseann's work is held in prominent private and public art collections including Bendigo Art Gallery, Latrobe Regional Art Gallery, Wangaratta Art Gallery and RMIT Gallery. Louiseann utilises a broad range of media in her practice including glass, bronze, fabric, film, sound, wood and the found object.
