Rohana Holiday – Artist Statement

As the wind blows, another leaf is shed. No longer needed, it
is let go and falls gently to the ground to become part of the
collective leaf litter. No longer needed, no longer wanted. The
colour will change through shades of brown before eventually
succumbing to decay and becoming the soil. As I walk through
the eucalyptus trees to refresh, to recharge, I comb the forest
floor, just as others do hunting for treasures on the beach. I
can’t help but collect my favourites. A beautiful colour, an
unusual shape. I’m especially attracted to a bit of artful
nibbling from a hungry insect. I always come home with a
pocket full of leaves. My house is adorned with garlands of
eucalyptus leaves, but leaves are fragile and become brittle
with age. Needing a way to preserve them, making them in
copper and silver made sense. Each piece is modelled from a
real found leaf. A little bit is left to chance as I add a patina by
repeated heating and quenching, a wonderfully enjoyable

experimental process. Now my beloved eucalyptus leaves can
be enjoyed for generations.
