The wallum (coastal lowland heath) areas of southeast Queensland are endangered but beautiful ecosystems, often overlooked and under threat by development. The small but exquisitely jewel-like flowering and fruiting bodies, leaf types and stems provide inspiration for jeweller Rebecca Ward and ceramicist Shannon Garson, whose works fuse ceramics, jewellery glass, film, web-based media and photography.
