Project details


The project was a design concept competition for students. We were asked to design a bathroom based on one of the four elements, earth, air, water and fire. We were only able to products available from tile company, Crosby Tiles.

My concept was using my Indigenous heritage to create a bathroom based on the element, water. I was inspired by the Waagyl, a Nyoongar water serpent spirit. The creator of the waterways through Nyoongar country. I used colours based on stories and painting to depict the Waagyl spirit within the space and using the products of tile company. My concept won the Judges Choice Award.
