Tradition of the little people
Figurative forms carved from basalt inhabit sacred sites on Erub. Many of these have been lost or dispersed through indiscriminate collecting and development. These stone little people have inspired research resulting in the creation of clay figures which express artists connections to their ancestral histories.
The medium of woodfired ceramics translates the significance of basalt rock and the volcanic nature of the island by bringing elements of man, his land and sea together in an ancient craft.
Fired in Australia’s most northerly kiln built in 2003. The piece derives its individual markings from the deepwater seaweed used during the twenty-one hour firing process. This ceramic sculpture is richly decorated with woven elements.
