My work is an exploration of my family history; it follows the journey my great-grandparents took from Italy to Australia 80 years ago. The concept of the slip-cast bottle as vessel represents the metaphor of the sea journey. In my use of glazes, oxides, screen-printed text and wax emulsion the surface treatment provides a bilingual narrative of the journey.
