Materials into Ideas ⁄ Ideas into Materials


Alan Preston

"These works are materials into ideas and vice versa. The pumice was collected at Taupo en route to work at Masterton Polytech with Galvan Macnamara and made there then. The violet snails were collected from Muriwai beach years ago and finally were made this year. They are part of a series I have made around my idea that they would have been made here in pre european times."

"Ideas to Materials: utilise rock core samples from specific locations to make souvenirs.
Materials to Ideas: the core sample hole in this rock slab just looks like it needs a finger."
