I was pleased to be contacted by the Queensland Resources Council to created a series of gifts for their Resources Awards for Women awards, ahead of the QRC/WIMARQ International Women’s Day Breakfast event. The commission of 6 bowls was based on my kiln-formed open plates series (plates from this series were also commissioned by the Queensland Government in 2014 for gifting some G20 representatives, see my previous blog post). The new plates for this award had to capture the colours of Queensland’s soil and geological resources, as well as violet, the colours symbols of the suffragettes movement.
The breakfast was held on May 8, 2016 when the trophies were presented to all the winners (congratulations from Glass Artistry). In the photo gallery below you can see few more images of some of the plates and the winners.
