I’m making art
I’ve enjoyed researching our food system, and social media has been effective to get the word out, but I feel like it’s time to start communicating food in a new way. Also, to be kind to myself, off the computer and in the real world.

I had an idea to start a food museum to influence public debate about food. But that was a little ambitious, so I scaled back the idea to create museum exhibitions. And then I whittled it down a little more.

To make art—or something of the sort.

Chicken of Tomorrow (part two)
I’m working on a piece to rev things up. It’s a celebration of a new chapter in Australian chicken history, with the introduction of the Sommerlad chook.

The first step of making this was delicious! Then I made stock, cleaned the bones and dried them.

When I first got my hands on the chook, I could see the difference… then I could taste it… but the bones really hit it home that this was a different bird.

Then I made moulds, loads of them!

And I’ve been playing with a million different clays, or so it seems, and this is a few test cast bones in a bowl.

Porcelain is a bit of a princess, so there have been a few swears on the wheel.

These bowls were my first success with this particular porcelain. Still a way to go, I want to make a little flock.

This is an appetizer, a taste of things to come.

I’m working on the campaign for a piece that requires your involvement. Hence my call to sign up to the mailing list, or give us a follow!
