Sean O’Connell makes moving jewellery pieces that act like amulets which help the wearer move smoothly through the frictions of everyday life. Each of these simple little machines is made individually by hand, on the lathe, and by file, saw, and hammer. The process is intimate and full of care.
Sean has been making jewellery for over 15 years, having won awards here and abroad, with work held in several major public collections, including the National Gallery of Victoria.
He lives and works in the subalpine highlands of Tasmania, on the edge of the Great Lake.
