Living in Ipswich presents a charismatic and quirky selection of Ipswich’s ‘Queenslander’ houses, each recreated in miniature as a glazed ceramic sculpture.
Reminiscent of little stage sets, the sculptures first project the homes’ façades, timber fretwork and iron balustrades, and then, looking through the windows they reveal the intimate narratives of the lives lived within.
South African born ceramic artist Jane du Rand, immigrated to Australia in 2014. Today she lives in a ‘Queenslander’ in Ipswich.
The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is a partnership between Queensland Government and Ipswich City Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
