Rachelle Austen – 'Ex Ignes, Cinis' Sculpture, 2023

Ex Ignes, the narrative of hope and resilience depicted in a sculptural carved brick that can be wall mounted or placed upright or laid flat. "Cinis", Latin for "Ash", explores the solid remnants of fire, which contain the vital minerals of carbon, calcium, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus.

Rachelle Austen of ‘Tiny Time’ is a a ceramic artist, living and working on her bush block
in the Macedon Ranges on Dja Dja Wurrung country. Rachelle pushes her material to the extremes with the intent of causing cracks and fissures into the delicately thin androbust solid forms, pushing the material before and beyond breaking, a metaphor for the resilience of existence, the fragility of life and most importantly, the beauty that may be found in the broken, and finding acceptance in imperfections. She has a background in Industrial Design, graduating from a Bachelors at Monash University.
