think with the hands
then the gut
then the brain
structural integrity is important
as much as the mistakes

i want these lamps to last a very long time
like a life long friend (for you)
that is not perfect
and yet
close enough

i think about
how light throws
stretching across
your room and
the things you own
and the kind of person
who would want something
so odd
and I’m glad that person exists

Ode to Heidelberg
the women who came and gone
the women who taught me so much
i dedicate this lamp to
something personal from me
to you

Queena Grot is about seeking form through spontaneity and wonder, balanced by this want to shape how light is thrown across a room, the shadows it creates, hoping that something imperfectly human emerges, something useful that is also unique, timeless and in its own way, ridiculous. Queena Grot is the self-taught ceramic practice of Pamela Rosel, a bi-cultural Filipino/Australian creative working out of Brisbane (Meanjin). She is a graphic and digital designer by trade and this practice is her running away from that. Her work explores sparking intimacy and connection through the hyper-personal, particularly in moments of solitude. She is also the vocalist in Meanjin band Guppy.
