Raku clay piece ‘Domestic Divine’. 2017 Australian Decorative and Fine Arts cash prize and the Andor Meszarros Medallion at the annual exhibition of the Association of Sculptors of Victoria. The judges’ statement:

“This work appealed on multiple levels. While deceptively simple in terms of its component parts, the combination of a domestic dinner plate with a finely modelled and executed head created a witty composition that plays on Buddhist and Christian Iconography. The result is original, contemplative and compositionally intriguing.”

Also as winning piece ‘Looking up’-small male bust looking beyond the everyday into a deeply meditative space.
