theBonery......and Faustette, doing what she do.

all Bonery pieces are hand made and one off

no creatures were harmed. just mused

she's something of a phenomena...i think
modelled by the gorgeous bee. 

artist and designer from sydneys dirty south. now living in the trees of the east,
i have been making bone pieces for over 3 years. every piece is made by individual process with proper time and thought. they pretty much create themselves using my hands and my eyes to pull together. every bone, tooth and marble eye is hand sculpted and set with various pieces of glass metal and plastic beads.
natural form and creation is my muse so i choose to use the given forms of the skeleton.i love being in the Bonery playing with all the textures, colours and shapes.finding the perfect mismatches. 
i use old marbles to make eye like pendants. they provide me with endless findings from the un predictable colour schemes to the smash marks reminiscent of the day they K.O'd the rest outta the chalk ring! remember the end of men in black??  
sometimes i think of the dark bone pieces as astronauts blown up in the sky. their floating graves mingling with space rocks. the ivory colour bones have more of a earthly feel, but i like to mix them up with raving bits of plastic and fluro colour.
FAUSTETTE is an evolving character on a journey. she travels through the form of creatures space and colour. she features in my art works most of the time. but bee did an amazing job at channelling her essence.
