Gnamma

Sale price Price $35.00 Regular price $45.00 Unit price  per 

One of the main sources of water in many regions of Australia for First Nations people were ‘gnamma’ holes. These natural cavities are commonly found in hard rock, particularly granite outcrops, and as such act as natural water tanks, which are replenished from underground stores and rainwater run-off.

Gnamma holes vary in shape and depth, and the small surface area of the hole helps to minimise evaporation.

These pieces have been created to honour and respect the storytelling and cultural knowledge of First Nations People's and should be worn with respect. I want for the wearer to start a journey of thier own personal knowledge seeking of culture and history on the lands they live and work.

 

Pieces made from Blue Gum wood and a translucent green acrylic. All findings are stainless steel.
