Bin Dixon Ward

A graduate of RMIT, Gold and Silversmithing, Bin Dixon-Wardhas exhibited in Japan, Europe and North America as well as at home in Australia. The recipient of several awards for her jewellery, including the Itami Award and the Diana Morgan RMIT Post-Graduate Award. Her work is held in public and private collections including the National Gallery of Victoria, The Powerhouse Museum, Sydney, and Musee des Arts Décoratifs de Paris and The Art Gallery of South Australia.

Initially driven by her lived experience of Melbourne, where she lives and works, Bin’s practice explores the relationship between the formal shapes of cities and their inhabitants. A city is made up of multifaceted, multi-layered collections of shapes, objects, activity and flows. Her jewellery-making practice investigates how we engage with these complexities of built environments and how they can be represented at wearable scale.
