dug from a garden that once was a dune

Earthenware from Sommers Bay, salt water from D'entrecasteaux Channel, fired in wood fire kiln/oven, 2019

These vessels hold in them a past of grasses growing, wallabies hiding, people sharing stories, roots extending. Each particle in the clay has come from a rock that have broken down over time. Once refined, remoulded and fired, the clay looks like the rock it once was. These bowls sit in the gallery today, but they belong to the southern coastlines of lutruwita/Tasmania. Take them there, cup water over yourself with them. They are home, you are washed.
