From frilly underwear to jewellery

From Standing Room Only, 12:30 pm on 18 June 2017

Vintage women's underwear adorn the walls of the new Charles Brasch Studio in Dunedin, courtesy of the first artist to be invited there on a residency. The Caselberg Trust spent years raising the money, then building the studio, and chose local jeweller and artist Victoria McIntosh for the inaugural three month Residency. Victoria's jewellery's been shown throughout the country and in Munich - but she also works with found objects. Lynn Freeman was curious to find the connection between antique knickers and jewellery.
