Delighted to have the chance to see this commission work again. First seen as part of Storm in a Teacup exhibition curated by Wendy Garden for the McClelland Regional Art Gallery in 2015. The combination of material are particular to both place and history
From the catalogue:
The Briggs Family Tea Service represents the marriage (1810) of Greoge Briggs , a free settler to Tasmania, to Woretermoeteyenner of the Pairrebeenne people, and the four children they had together. The tea service combines the materials common for water holding to each culture - porcelain in Britain and bull kelp in Tasmania - to represent the emergence of a hybrid culture.
|Designed by Trent Jansen, made in collaboration with Rod Bamford (ceramics) , Oliver Smith (copper & brass) and Vicki West (bull kelp).|
