Young Hunting presents Lot I of it’s first collection, Fata Morgana at Craft Victoria’s Craft Hatch Market on Saturday April 10.
For Young Hunting’s first collection Fata Morgana, Candice explores the realms of myth and folklore.
Fata Morgana is the Italian name for Morgan le Fay. Reputedly a sorceress and able to change shape at will, she was sometimes said to live below the sea in a crystal palace that could also rise above the surface.
A series of rings and pendants that are raw, tooled and cut rough by hand, resemble crystal mountains and illusory weapons. Heavy rocks of .925 are finished to a high polish, and juxtaposed against oxidized black. The sombre colour palette of silver .925 and black natural forms of jet crystal and black obsidian are interspersed with the blues and purples from carved pieces of paua shell.
