Using the past to respond to our world today, recycled wire is woven to produce tactile vessels that are both hard and soft at the same time. The knitted copper has a delicateness that translates to the exchange of memories. It is this sense of fragility, a thread of the past, which is so evocative.
The series of delicate vessels are multi-layered,
being as much about the fragility of medium of as with an awareness of the Australian environment and the natural world. The rice paper is eco printed then formed into vessels using recycled candles and beeswax. The shape of the eucalyptus leaves and ink lines seem vulnerable, fragile, and become forms of mysterious promise, no two the same.
My book forms echo the Australian ecosystem. The solid shapes of the plant prints with the natural eco plant prints become mediums of shadowy promise; with a hint of mystery and alchemy. Each print is different, like nature itself. The pages are then formed into standing book forms like sentinels of the environment.
