ARTEFACT OBJECTS

2018

Exhibited in the group show Artefacts as part of the NGV Melbourne Design Week 2018, these three works sit within an ongoing exploration of Frilled Vessels and were acquired by The National Gallery of Victoria for their contemporary design collection.

Protrusions added to the pieces reference symmetry in the natural world and organic matter like spines on cacti, radiating flower petals, and insect antennae.  They also borrow from surface decorations found on ancient vessels and garments, such as the decorative spikes on Minoan ritual jugs and the repeating grid patterns of East Asian armour.
