Yutta Dugitj Pendant - Zelda Wurigir


This hand woven pendant is part of a collection of Yutta Dugitj lights developed by Koskela in collaboration with the weavers of Milingimbi Arts and Culture.

Yutu Dugitj means to grow, or to grow together; the artists at Milingimbi chose this name for their lampshade project as it speaks to the young and old artists working together. Koskela launched their collaboration with Milingimbi Arts and Culture in 2017.

Zelda Wurigir was born in 1963 and grew up on her mothers Homeland of Yilan. Living in the bush she learnt the bush ways from her old people including collecting, striping dying and weaving bush fibres. At the age of 9 she began to make her own weavings. Zelda's weavings are made skillfully and can be distinguished by a course aesthetic that is often associated with the clans whose Homelands lie to the east of Yurriwu (Milingimbi), towards Yilan.
