JULIA GREENFounder, Greenhouse Interiors, Barwon Heads There is an intriguing juxtaposition that is present within this intricately-created piece; the waratah flower itself signifies courage and strength – a fascinating contrast against the delicate detailing that has been created. There is no doubt it should take centre stage in any décor display, where it can invite conversation. It would work best with a minimalist approach, rather than among a busy collection of items.
BRETT MICKAN Interior Designer, Brett Mickan Interior Design, Sydney It is astonishing to see how the artist has captured this detailed, organic form as it seemingly continues to grow. I would celebrate the strong, contrasting shades by displaying it in a gallery-like interior. Large format, honed basalt floors, white walls, and a dark smoke finish on the timber trim. Placed on a refined Maxalto Eracle sideboard alongside a Henry Wilson Surface Sconce in Black Travertine, then hang a couple of small works in oil on the wall behind to complete the composition.
JONO FLEMING Designer and Stylist, Sydney With such intricate detail and delicate features, ‘Relic’ by Michelle Perrett is the centre of attention. I can see this sculpture having a moment on a sideboard, paired with a beautiful ceramic plate or organic timber tray. Nothing too bold, you don’t want to take away from the craftsmanship of the artwork. Don’t over clutter the surrounds, a sculpture like this speaks for itself and doesn’t need too much else around it.
