As a contemporary urban based Aboriginal (Arrernte) glass artist, Jenni Kemarre Martiniello's works pay tribute to traditional weavers, and provide recognition for these ancient cultural practices through the contemporary medium of glass, within the aesthetics of both.  Furnace Weave is inspired by traditional woven eel traps, fish traps, and coiled and open weave dillibags by Kaurna, Ngarrinjerri, Gunditjmara, Arrernte and NE Arnhem Land weavers.
