This brooch continues my personal conversations with the grids of society. Relating my personal spaces to those spaces shared with our environment inhabited by our communities as they swallow the entirety of the natural environment to enhance humans life pleasures whilst unwittingly destroying so much of the natural environment.

This brooch represents the view across the Swan River to Perth in the early morning, picturesque as it is at this moment of the day there is little to reveal the lost natural beauty in this river view, only the grid of buildings. - Brenda Ridgewell.
