Wares that make you feel salty.
Created for the Sunshine Coast "Super Souvenir" Exhibition apart of the 2018 Horizon Festival. Super Souvenir invited local artists to design, make and prototype a modern day souvenir. This project was committed to supporting and furthering the creative output for cultural souvenirs in hope for tourists and locals to gain a better understanding of the true culture of the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast, locally and afar. Each artist was encouraged to explore a story, object, an idea or a combination of these to produce a souvenir that encapsulates his or her own story.
My story, as a once beginner and always a woman surfer, I explored local-ism in surf breaks and the gap between the idealistic images of a traditional souvenir and what is often the case when a tourist paddles out into a crowded surf break.
These Clutches are little pieces of Art. They are all hand screen printed and sewed by me.
