loss reverence and longing

Currently working towards finishing installation piece for ‘loss reverence and longing’ at Wagga Wagga City Gallery.  This exhibition is part of the centenary commemorations of
the ANZAC story.  My contribution is called ‘absence’ and is four x 4 metre length panels
of gauze field bandage with cigarette cards sandwiched between the layers and stitched. The sculpture sits in front of the panels.

drawing on vessels

the previous vessels with drawn images were collaged onto the side – this vessel almost has a repeat pattern drawn directly into the clay.  everyone has their own way of accomplishing a task – after trial and error the best method  for me has been to cover the freshly hand built form in underglaze before it gets to the leather hard stage – and to carve back into the vessel while the clay is still quite moist.  vessel#3_03 vessell#3 vessel#3_02
