Settler's Cottage by Minky
Settler’s Cottage developed around an off cut of Kauri and a piece of Jacaranda Minky had in her studio.
Jack the sheep rustler built his hideout in remote mountainous Tasmania in the late 1800s. He was happy to live roughly and cook outside with the dunny on the edge of the cliff until he met Nellie. Nellie insisted on a kitchen, an attic and a toilet at the back door. To accommodate this extension, he terraced the cliff top. They lived symbiotically with their sheep, with the sheep eating the grass and Jack and Nellie eating the sheep. Nellie and Jack lived happily ever after in their isolated hideout.
Materials used - Kauri; Jacaranda; natural grasses; resin and acrylic.
Minky Grant is a miniature painter, print maker, jeweller and wood worker.
