This series is inspired by a special place in the South West of Australia, Conspicuous Cliffs. Amidst the wild roaring ocean, a fresh water stream and a long squeaky infinite white beach- sits a cliff that proudly dominates the land in a majestic and powerful form.
This year- when I escaped the city buzz to get a nature recharge with my Mum, we climbed Conspicuous.. and on the way back we collected some clay which had formed on the side of some rock. This clay was reconstituted by my Mum and her pieces which she has made from this found clay sit underneath the oxidised copper pieces which depict the cliff in these earrings.
These unique earrings are handcrafted from oxidised copper, glazed pieces of Conspicuous Cliff clay and sterling silver.
Collaboratively made alongside ceramicist- Janet Hummerston.
