When two friends with an admiration for each other’s work and a love of nature collide.
BOTANICALS UP CLOSE
My part of the exhibition is inspired by Herbariums and my fascination on the early documentation of plant species.
Herbarium specimens are always accompanied by a label that indicates the location where the plant was growing, the collector and the date collected. Often the label also includes information about the appearance of the plant and the context or habitat where it was found.
Each herbarium specimen is assigned a unique accession number, which functions like the catalog number of a book in a library. Typically, the plants are flattened dried and mounted on uniformly sized, archival paper.
Microscopic view: This mini-series was inspired by Greg Daly, during a workshop I attended at Strathnairn Arts in Canberra. During his glaze workshop he introduced me to a new way of observing the world and my muses. He shared the idea of using view finders, a piece of paper with a silhouette of a shape cut out.
Monochrome local flora and Vessels: I learnt ceramic illustrations from Mirra Whale using underglaze. I was interested in capturing the beauty of the botanic treasure I have found and been gifted. My botanical collection decorates my pottery studio.
