A special congratulations to one of the Bilk artists, Ximena Natanya Briceño.

Ximena has just completed her Doctor of Philosophy in Gold + Silversmithing at the Australian National University.

There will be an exhibition and reception at the ANU School of Art on Thursday 23 June at 6pm.

Her body of work features stunning filigree pieces using a variety of metals and both modern methods and ancient techniques.

Her body of research investigates the history of Spanish colonialism in Asia and the New World focusing on the introduction of the filigree technique in Peru after 1532 and the iconographic migration through Spanish trade routes across the Pacific of Asian techniques and motifs.

We urge you to attend; it’s sure to be brilliant.
