Description:

Terroir terraria. Entry in the Terrariums Contest. Chalk on paper. © Su Schaefer 2014

Terroir terraria. My entry in the Terrariums Contest - and thanks to everyone who voted and put this design in the Top 100 with 78 votes (90th out of 174 total entries). The proof printed nicely - see the 2nd thumbnail above - double click gives a clearer view. Another colorway 'Terroir terraria on white' has a light background.

'Terroir' can be loosely translated as 'a sense of place' and the way certain qualities of a place are expressed in its products e.g., wine, coffee, and more recently, cheese (Wikipedia). Here I'm using 'terroir' to describe the fabulous red soils of desert Australia, and a 'product' of recent changes in artesian water storage levels which results in visually elegant (but sad to see) mature dead trees. These were a striking aspect of recent travels in the outback and called to me to work them into a design.

Chalk on paper, half-drop repeat.

materia...

materialsgirl says: So beautiful Su! Almost mid-century modern in design but I especially am moved by the message. Am thinking how powerful this would be as an exhibit with real glass, deceptively elegant and decorative at first glance with such tragic undertones.

linkolisa says: I really like the elegant pattern created by your terrariums. And they really pop out against the dark background. Lovely!

I am so moved by your faves, comments, and feedback on this design and its story - I can't tell you how much, I am actually lost for words (not my normal state!). Thank you again to everyone who's taken the time to tell me how it touches you.

vanilla...

vanillabeandesigns says: An amazing design, and your story about the loss of water killing the trees makes the impact even stronger. The luminous quality of the sky is just stunning!

rhondad...

rhondadesigns says: Wow Su! You have used some very powerful imagery in this design! The way you have depicted these stark skeletal silhouettes of dead trees standing sentinel in the midst of an arid landscape is brilliant! The perilous beauty and vastness of the desert landscape is encapsulated in these glassy terrariums!

mulberr...

mulberry_tree says: Lovely design, Su. It reminds me of the landscape I see when I visit my brother in western Qld. It's great when a design can tell a story or evoke memories and look good at the same time! Good luck.

su_g

su_g says: Thanks so much Boo - so true about that gorgeous soil that will grow anything: just add water - in fact the whole area (from Bourke to Tibooburra, down to White Cliffs & Cobar) had just had rain and it was as green as I've ever seen it. And no, didn't make it out of NSW, if and when we do - you're on the list!

anniedeb

anniedeb says: I really like how you turned the idea for the terrarium contest inside out, Su. So original and very representative of lands affected by drought. After looking at your photos on Flickr, I'm struck by how much some of the landscape in Australia resembles southwestern Oklahoma. Great design.

bippidi...

bippidiiboppidii says: A wonderful (though sad) description for a lovely fabric. Thanks for the close up, great to see that detail... the gorgeous clouds and the sad tree in that red red soil that will grow anything... provided it has the ever precious water!!! (I hope you didn't swing past Darwin without saying hello? ;-P )
