Raewyn Walsh takes home the Objective Award 2011

Congratulations to Raewyn Walsh who picked up this year’s biggest prize – the premier award for Vessel 2011, (copper, paint, graphite and cast resin) 
Guest judge Deborah Crowe said that the first prize work was striking for its simplicity and confident in its execution. “This work stood out to the judging panel for its poise, deft manipulation of materials and sophisticated referencing of the past in a contemporary context” she explained.
Jewellery made a clean sweep with runner up going to Kvetoslava Sekanova  and third prize awarded  to Jasmine Watson

Feedback as good as ice cream

Flora Sekanova 2010

Current Broach of the Month Club wearer, Anna Miles, wrote a beautiful reflection on her experience wearing Flora's Sekanova's brooch.  I find her style of feedback extremely inspiring.  Even though it is not my work, I feel like I have been given a gift after reading this.
