Monaro, 2021

33 cm
I have been making a series of ceramic cars over the last couple of years. I am not particularly a car fanatic, but I really enjoy the beauty in the design aspects of them. The 'Monaro' is an iconic Australian car design, I have tried to honour this in the work with added wonkiness, the materiality of clay adds.
