Yuguri (Shellfish) Vase - Libby Harward

By Munimba-ja

Porcelain vase H 9cm W 7.5cm D 5cm

Handcrafted in an Australian studio; these vases are a collaboration between Libby Harward x Erin Lightfoot studio and made from beautiful Australian porcelain and feature an original decal print created by Libby Harward.

Libby has chosen to use seconds which enables her to maintain her care for country and love of character and difference. Each vase may have a slight intrigue, maybe a little dimple or mark or texture.

Libby’s decal design maps a journey from her salt and sand island, Mulgumpin celebrating the abundance of shellfish - yuguri (pippi) and ginyinggara (oysters). She travel with family across the bay, across countries, up through rivers creeks and over mountains into Jinibara country where she calls out and waits to be invited in, it is here the 2 meet and the blankets join on the river for ceremony on freshwater Bonyi country.
