Bea Bonafini’s prints feature her ceramic birds, one soaring to the sky, and the other, its direct inverse, falling to the ground. They are constructed through the marbling of mixed clays, vulcan stoneware and coloured porcelain. Bonafini depicts this spiritually significant creature, fragmenting its shape and combining intense patterning to complicating its reading.
