Bush flower bicornuals, set of two

Hot blown glass with murrine

These works are inspired by the native trees, bushes, blossoms and grasses of the Mt Lofty foothills where I grew up, traditionally Kaurna country. The range of native flora is extensive, but the flora whose specific colours, forms and textures directly influenced the creation of the murrine, from which these works are made, include varieties of eucalypts, casuarinas, correas, sedges, saltbush, goodenias, flax-lilies, sticky hops, honey-myrtles, boobiallas, rushes, grasses, wattles and orchids.
