Created as a memento for a mother, the textures in the porcelain for this Light Box were made using a hand knitted jumper, hand made lace and handkerchiefs that were originally made by the clients mother. The LightBox is a new object but preserves memories and nostalgia for the past, capturing a sense of the person via the items supplied to texture the clay.

A lack of interesting and original lighting prompted clients in Auckland to commission Susannah to make them something special. Chosen from a selection of her available fabrics the porcelain panels were made. These four hard wired wall mounted LightBoxes now illuminate the lounge of this 100 year old bungalow – and they look awesome!
