Referencing gold in its periodic form (Au) and the colour blue in art history (Lapis Lazuli), Au Lazuli explored the juxtaposition between surface and substance. Taking visual influence from the Arts & Crafts movement and 12th century Gothic Art, the collection interpreted the emotional durability theory and used subtle details to prompt longevity through discovery on further investigation.
