'Kirribilli Tapestry' is a ceramic wall installation inspired by it's architectural context. Having an architecture background herself, Natalie saw this project as a way to embrace the architectural features of the home and it's qualities. Both clients agreed they didn't want something too distracting and that would take a way from Bijl Architecture's design of their house, something that really fit in with a subdued colour palette.
Focusing on this space, there is a skylight directly above, producing beautiful shadows and a strong sense of time and place. When the shadows are cast at various angles depending on the time of day and year, inhabitants get a sense of time passing, almost like a sun dial. The use of ceramics for this space is very fitting, with such harsh direct sunlight, a more traditional painting may not withstand this heat, though these ceramic elements have already been through a 1250 degree Celsius kiln and can definitely handle the heat.
