A ceramicist living in Perth and using the
medium of paper clay, Robins creates
delicate and complex sculptures that are
inspired by coastal forms and the marine
environment. She is currently interested
in the effects of climate change and the
threat to our ocean systems, with a focus
on coral bleaching caused by rising sea
temperatures which has the potential to
destroy the reef ecosystem. Her sculpture
aims to represent the coral’s loss by
making fragile, white structures layered to
represent the reef’s damage and decline.
