Ashes Box
materials: Blackwood, Gidgee, ancient
Redgum, oxidised Blackwood
dimensions: 400 x 230 x 370mm

Ashes Box was made to house the ashes of my parents. The 2 plastic urns containing the ashes fit snugly inside.

The timber used was selected specifically to reference the areas from which my parents originated. The box is made from Blackwood, a temperate acacia species found in the north east of Victoria where my mother grew up. The doors are made from Gidgee, an arid acacia species, representative of the arid landscape of north western Victoria, where my father grew up. The reversed flame pattern of the doors is indicative of spirits passing.
