Colin Burn was born in Australia in 1963. He commenced his working career as an apprentice electroplater in Perth, Western Australia. While perfecting his trade skills working with precious metals his love of alchemy began. After graduating he moved to Sydney to work with a leading Australian jewelry firm in their silverware division. In 1985 at the age of 23 he founded his first jewelry company creating real alchemy by turning natural objects into gold with his invention of a unique and secretive gold forming process. His creative jewelry works have received recognition and support from the Australian and Japanese governments, as well a leading Australian sporting groups, helping him forge a successful career servicing a global audience of appreciative clients.
In 2004 Colin turned his skills to creating erotic jewelry art, capturing highly emotive elements within his compelling designs. Having spent a great deal of time in Japan and Asia, his works are influenced from his observation and experience of these exotic cultures. His erotic jewelry art is described as avant-garde works of surrealism taking a provocative subject matter to abstract and luxurious levels never seen before. Colin believes jewelry and art share a unique bond, having a meaningful and emotional impact on people lives, he states “while it could be argued that no one really needs jewelry or art, our emotions tell us otherwise”.
Having enjoyed and experienced a comprehensive 35 year career across all areas of jewelry making, Colin is now solely focused on creating his truly unique collection of luxury contemporary artworks.
