Spinifex Platter

A blown glass object from photosensitive glass with imagery created by the shadow of Spinifex seeds.

Spinifex is a New Zealand native sand-binding grass with distinctive runners carrying tufts of floppy grey-green leaves and ball-like seed heads. When the wind blows, the seed heads roll along the beach until they become lodged against some obstacle, and release their seeds.

Photosensitive glass colour overlayed with "tea"
