Once Lost, Never Forgotten



Some soldiers from the First World War kept little keepsakes with them to remind them of home or to keep them safe.  One of the artefacts found in the grave pits near Pheasant Wood was a little ornament – that probably was once a little bear.

Certains soldats de la Première Guerre Mondiale gardaient des souvenirs auprès d’eux. Un de ces objets façonné, retrouvé dans un puits près du Pheasant Wood était un petit ornement ; probablement un ourson.

Inspired by this I have made “Kenneth” a mix of Talisman to keep us safe, Kenny Koala to remind us of home, and Kiln God to safely look after the firing of the pieces for this exhibition.

Inspiré par ceci, j’ai créée “Kenneth” le “cocktail” d’un Talisman protecteur, de Kenny Koala pour nous remémorer notre pays, et du Dieu du four pour surveiller la cuisson des oeuvres pour l’exposition.

Part Fromelles historically inspired, part whimsical, part of the kiln god history.

‘’May Kenneth watch over all of us and guide us safely through to a more peaceful future.”

“Que Kenneth nous protège et qu’il nous guide vers un futur plus paisible”
