Marine Forms from the Fleurieu Peninsula
Robin Best

Madame Mao's Dowry
10 -1 November 2002

Robin Best Porcelain is amongst the most exquisite of Chinese art forms, with its fragility and beauty it creates a feeling of intense vulnerability.

The cast porcelain forms in this exhibition carry the imprints of a host of marine life that inhabit the reefs of the Southern Ocean including algae, seaweeds, sponges, bryozoans and corals. These reefs are under enormous stress from pollution and competition from introduced species.
