William Ricketts lived and worked on a 4
acre fern and Mountain Ash covered gully in the Dandenongs from 1934 until his
death in 1993.
He made sculptures from clay sourced f
rom Bendigo, Victoria. Fired them, then located them throughout his property
. Embedded into tree trunks and on massive rocks, as if they had always
been there; expressing the idea that the original
owners where still of the land taking care of it.
