Pandanus

Finalist

Ceramic, 51x45x45cm

The coastal fringe where I live hosts the unique Pandanus palm. Exposed to the elements, phallic aerial roots help it cling to rock faces. The trunks, with spiralling patterns, are evocative of life lines and of life journeys, with knobbly bits like scars or moments, as points of reference along the way.
