These Cufflinks are part of my Emerge range. They measure approx. 2cm wide. I have stamped a Roman numeral date MMXI-II -XXII which is 2011-2-22 into the clay and glazed it Red. The front and sides are glazed with a glossy clear crackle glaze and the back is unglazed.

They are attached to silver plated link backs.

Read more about the Emerge range below:

Liquefaction (pronounced “lick-wi-fack-shin”) happens during earthquakes. The ground shaking that occurs during an earthquake can cause some soils to liquefy. This means that during an earthquake these soils will behave more like a liquid than a solid…

The process of Liquefaction happened throughout the city, causing so much destruction. This silty soil has ruined thousands of homes and many suburbs of Christchurch have been lost to land damage, and residents have been forced to leave their homes and move elsewhere.

Like many, this silt also affected my property 3 times and I decided to do something positive with this substance that has caused so much damage and so much loss. My main motivations with the Emerge range are to create beauty from disaster, and to help the present and future of our city. 30% of the proceeds of each purchase go to a current appeal most needed in our city.

Each piece is different and will not be the one pictured due to nature of marbling the silt in by hand and hand cutting. Some will have a heavier pattern, some will be lighter in colour - but they will all contain silt.
