We are completely head over heels in love with Kate Rohde's work.
Kate is an artist and jewellery maker based in Melbourne. Her passion for making jewellery came after she collaborated with Australian fashion house 'Romance was Born'.
The colourful candy-looking jewellery is made out of the most beautiful colourful resin, all handmade by Kate. WE SERIOUSLY NEED TO GET OUR HANDS ON THESE BEAUTIES!
Ever the multi-tasker, Rohde has held several solo exhibitions and over thirty group exhibitions. Her various awards include: Helen Lempriere National Sculpture Award (finalist) (2006); Ripe: ANZ private bank / Art and Australia Emerging Artists Prize (finalist) (2006); Linden Postcard Show (winner) (2004); National Gallery of Victoria Women’s Association Encouragement Award, Victorian College of the Arts (2000) and Graduate Exhibition, Victorian College of the Arts (2000).
Kate has also received a number of grants and residencies that include: Creation Grant, Arts Victoria (2008); Asialink Residency, Tokyo Wonder Site, Tokyo (2008); Australian Council for the Arts Studio Residency, Cite International des Arts, Paris (2007); Culture Trackers Program, 24HR Art Residency, Oenpelli, Northern Territory (2006); Australia Council for the Arts, New Work Grant (2004) and City of Melbourne Arts Grant (2003).
