Rose the Turtle (Lachlan Plain)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe tortoise, oops, turtle has once again found its way to Bulleen Art & Garden, presumably it has wandered up from the river! which watched over the entrance to Bulleen Art & Garden from the direction of the adjoining parklands. There has been a turtle at this site, next to the park, but the turtle has had another reincarnation, and is now named Rose. Artist Lachlan Plain, (lachlanplain.com )who has been involved in a lot of the artwork around Bulleen Art & Garden has been busy creating a new turtle, with the help of colleague Colleen Bourke. Rose is a lady turtle with lots of personality. She is now in colour and has been crafted in fibreglass. Installation was 21st September 2010.

roseThe Raising of Rose

In September 2012 Rose the turtle was given a better view with new stand. This tied in with work on the new Healthy Living Waterways gate and disabled access to the parks. This is Bulleen Art & Garden's latest way to promote the wonderful park just next to the nursery. There is a new wheelchair accessible walkway and a crafted steel gate promoting our waterways leading to the park where BAAG has a long term revegetation program. And you can now see Rose the turtle more clearly as she emerges from the park and the Yarra, seeming to swim in mid air. Make sure you meet Rose rose1

I started work in advertising at the age of seventeen and then went on to study two Diplomas at RMIT, one in Graphic Design and the other in Ceramics. I then went to Melbourne State College and completed a Diploma of Education. Two of the areas I studied which I enjoyed most were textiles and ceramics. Textiles included spinning, weaving, tie dye and batik. I am currently teaching Ceramics, Drawing and Visual Communication and Design at Eltham High School to levels 7-12. In 1986 I was awarded a teacher exchange to Pennsylvania USA for a year. It was here that I was introduced to basket weaving- Melon Baskets, Egg Baskets, Potato baskets, Heart shaped Baskets and many other designs.
