When visiting The David Roche Foundation House Museum, Regine Schwarzer's attention was immediately drawn to the diverse, small-scale, precious, utilitarian artefacts held in cabinets throughout Fermoy House. These treasures prompted her to research their historical uses, and to contemplate what the objects meant to the people that lived with them many years ago.

For this exhibition, she has created small objects for daily use and appreciation: containers, canisters, tea caddy spoons, toothpick holders, spice dishes with spoons, bodkin cases, and other objet d’art. Often thought as commonplace or designed for their utility, these have been elevated beyond the everyday through the use of precious metals, gemstones, rocks and minerals.

Regine Schwarzer: Deliberations on Fermoy is proudly presented as part of the South Australian Living Artists Festival.
