Hot blown glass with murrine
260 mm x 250 mm x 140 mm, 320 mm x 280 mm x 160 mm
These works are inspired by the native trees, bushes, blossoms and grasses in Parachilna Gorge, Flinders Ranges, traditionally Adnamathana country. My father told me stories about Parachilna Gorge when I was a child and I was able to photograph these on a field trip in 2012. The range of native flora is extensive, but those whose specific colours, forms and textures directly influenced this murrine creation include varieties of saltbush, desert and plains lantern bushes, cassinias, spear and lemon grasses, red mallee, goodenias, hibiscus, bluebushes, mulla mullas, senna, lawrencia and minuria.
