In July 2014 I represented the 607 women who signed the third suffrage petition from the Wairarapa region with 607 cast domestic objects.

These were hung around the region in four different locations and brought together at Aratoi at the conclusion of the project.

I spent three weeks at a cottage at NZ Pacific Studios, Mt Bruce where I had won a fellowship.

Giovanni Tiso was kind enough to write a post about the work

national council of women

The inaugural National Council of Women of New Zealand, formed in 1896.

In honour of this group of women I produced a set of objects for each of the 26 women – a ring, a pendant, an apron and a portrait. These objects were made of found objects and textiles.
