Sabine Figaro is a local, self-taught watercolour artist known for her bright, happy sketches of native Australian flora and fauna. Sabine has such a vibrant, unique style, and with a background in microbiology, it is easy to see why Australian wildlife and the ocean are a constant inspiration in her work. Her Rainbow Container Key design is a combination of two iconic symbols in Fremantle – the Rainbow shipping container sculpture on Canning Highway that overlooks the port, and the Round House Prison which is one of Fremantle’s original buildings. Together, these symbols come together to form a key design, which represents the unlocking of one’s potential in a city that is full of creativity, adventure and possibilities. The two symbols also represent a sort of feeling of home for Sabine, as her home overlooks both the Shipping Container sculpture and the old Fremantle Prison.
Local ceramic artist Belen Berganza designed this print, who creates unique, contemporary, sustainable handmade ceramics using porcelain and earthenware. Belen’s work Began after four years of training in Spain, and has taken her across the world from Portugal to Southern France, to Bali and now to Fremantle. After 15 years, Belen’s work has been greatly influenced by Fremantle, its colours, people and nature. This design is inspired by Belen’s own connection to Fremantle’s iconography, its unique images that represent its community and spirit. The line upon which all of the images sit represents the time and space that connects all of them, the coastal, homely nature of Fremantle.
