As an Aboriginal (Arrernte) artist I seek to invoke the organic ‘weaves’ and forms of traditional woven objects such as eel traps, fish traps and dillibags in my hot blown glass works, and pay tribute to the survival of the oldest living weaving practices in the world. My intention is to appropriate the contemporary medium of glass to become a vehicle for ongoing First Nations cultural expression. The Palm Fibre Baskets are an extension of this, seeking to evoke the weaves of various native fibres where they occur naturally in varying environments and ecosystems. This work is inspired by my photographs of palm trees on Mission Beach QLD after Cyclone Yasi had stripped open their layers of bark.
