My work is influenced by finding rubbish in the environment. Australia has a high rate of pollution, specifically rubbish, and I want people to be aware of this. I have created an artwork where rubbish is made into something beautiful. The porcelain sculptures are delicate compared to rubbish and therefore have more value, but I want people to realise that rubbish is just as valuable and should not be discarded in our environment as it affects it immensely. I hope my work inspires people to stop littering and start picking up rubbish in order to save and protect our environment.
