Kaurna, Boandik and Ngarrindjeri artist Christina Gollan is inspired by the plants in her suburban Adelaide backyard and the birds that they attract. Her vibrantly coloured forms are made using a range of hand-building techniques whereby the ceramic surface becomes a clay canvas for a vivid encounter with nature. As Gollan says,
"Making something out of a block of clay into something amazing is the most wonderful feeling ever. Even the smallest seed pods or animals can show you life is so precious and beautiful, big or small. I love making things people might not notice."
