This Lino print was created by carving images of native flora into a sheet of Lino and printing the negative. It depicts a range of plants found in my local area including smaller flowers such as flowering gum and wattle, as well as the rare Waratah and Billy Buttons. 


Artwork three

Waratah and Bottle Brush Grevillia Vase (2020)

glazed ceramic, 28cm X 8cm

Strahan Cormican-Jones

This vase was created by carving images of native flora into a sheet of Lino and printing the negative onto a slab of clay which was then formed into a vase and glazed. I wanted to bring colour to the domestic landscape by creating a vase with bright glaze, inspired by how flowers are accents of colour within natural landscapes. I see this vase filled with bouquets of native flowers which are reminders of the land to which we belong.


Let’s build something together.
