the daily dyepot- day one

Todays dye pot is on Groote Eylandt,  at the remote community of Anurugu. I have been working with the women here at the art centre  for the last few years. We collect leaves and  make a magical brew.  The things that are coming out of these rusty pots

 are mind blowingly beautiful, reflecting the colour palette of the land here and the black of the manganese extracted from the earth.
Tammy stitching silk to make wearable art. This was then put in  the pot on the left. We can't wait until the morning to unwrap our 'presents'.
