Raised in Australia's multicultural tropical city of Darwin, Kath Inglis moved south to Adelaide to study contemporary jewellery. After graduating from the South Australian School of Art in 2000, Kath continued to develop her practice by working from a number of studios, including the renowned Gray Street Workshop, JamFactory's Metal Design Studio and soda and rhyme.
Kath is inspired by her surroundings; with political and social issues to weather extremes and subtle events, finding their way into her work. Her jewellery pieces become an autobiography of her life. Her passion for Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) started in 2001 and she takes great joy in transforming a mundane material into something precious.
A career highlight so far is having her work collected by the Art Gallery of SA and at the same time being included in the Guildhouse 50th anniversary exhibition in 2016. Kath Inglis’ work is in high demand and her jewellery can be found in stockists and gallery shops in Australia, New Zealand, USA and China. Kath lives in the beautiful Adelaide Hills with a work bench located at The Barn.
