Trunk 21

handmade glazed stoneware
21cm height x 3cm diameter

Each of these vessels have been made in response to the landscape after being burnt by recent bushfires. Each trunk has individual marks and colours vary. Some have hints of green showing through the dark brown of burnt bark signifying new growth. Although the pieces are sold individually, they work well as a group, like a clump of trees.

I think it is important that we see the beauty in death and that we recognise that an item we may purchase for our homes or personal spaces don’t always reflect nature in its perfect state.
