This body of work spans the 365 days after my mother’s death. Each element represents one day, slowing down time to reconcile art, life and death. During this time, Cyclone Debbie swept through Lismore. It submerged the town, coating some of the bisqued pieces with toxic mud. I re-fired them, baking the flood on as part of the history of the pieces. They emerged prematurely aged, archeological relics redefining time through external and personal catastrophic events. I’d like this work to inhabit this site, which is a memorial and resting place for people we wish were still here.
