Lacrimae five, 2010-11. Porcelains. From the exhibition Three Hemispheres, 2011. Rex Irwin Art Dealer, Sydney.
Ancient Roman glass ‘tear catchers’ given form as small vessels – typified as bottles or jars – are known as lacrimaria and unguentaria. Lacrimae are tears. Catch your tears for they are precious water and salt. Catch their fall and behold their flow.
