Sculpture Among the Tulips at Tesselaar Tulip Farm
Our two entries this year were recently displayed as part of the Toorak show – Chris’ Social Collider Theory and my award-winning Clasp.
The Clasp won the top prize at Toorak from a field of 92 entries and I hope it is just as well received at Tesselaar.
The 2.4m sculpture, made from corten steel with a natural rusted finish, has sentimental value – it was inspired by the delicate and intricate clasps found on jewellery owned by my grandmother.
Chris is also hoping for great things at Tesselaar – in 2008 he was awarded a High Commendation for his sculpture Eggular, so this year he is hoping to better that and take out the big $10,000 prize and the chance for his work to become a permanent feature at Tesselaar Gardens.
