Katherine Hubble — 'Hatchery Strand Series', 2019 - 2021

Hatchery Strand Series was made upon my return to Melbourne after my fieldwork in Broome where I visited Willie Creek pearl farm. Here, I experienced pearl hatchery firsthand and learnt about Willie Creek farm's cultivation methods. This series is informed by this experience and all that I saw in the hatchery.
