TOWNSHIP 13

Back to Artworks
Introduction

Township 13 explores a section of land near Garson, Manitoba. Using air photos a portion of a township map is reimagined in sterling silver and other materials. This area includes the small farm Wasney’s grandparents worked when they emigrated from Poland in 1903. As impoverished immigrants the land they had access to was not ideal.. The resulting piece is a 15.25 by 15.25cm "map" housed in a custom made box that is also sixteen wearable jewellery pieces. The project was funded in part by the Manitoba Arts Council.
