Kelp Vessels

Nannette is a Tyereelore Elder from Tasmania with ties to the Boonwurrung/Bunurong people of Southern Victoria. Nannette creates traditional Bull Kelp water vessels using the same practice and materials that were used by Tasmanian Aboriginal women for thousands of years.

Her superb kelp vessels and strung shell adornments are represented in the collections of the National Museum of Australia (NMA) and Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG), the Koorie Heritage Trust and Bluestone Group.

Nannette has exhibited in several major exhibitions at TMAG, Museum and Art Northern Territory (MAGNT) and Fremantle Arts Centre.

In 2018 Nannette was a finalist at the Telstra NATSIAA’s and has had her work feature at Tarnanthi Art Fair in Adelaide and at the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair.

Baluk Arts treasure our friendship with Auntie Nettie and are proud to represent a large collection of her exquisite kelp pieces.
