   Sculpture Description

Dedicated to my mother Penny who passed away suddenly this year, this kinetic shimmering tree is the product of many years of exploring how my materials of choice can move in the wind to produce shimmering effects. Inspired by the clusters of wattle on our property in Bendigo, this durable sculpture will flower all year round.

Judges' Comments:

The judges felt that this work would be right at home in the Sale Botanic Gardens, as a robust and beautiful sculpture that will inspire and delight visitors to the gardens. The tree sculpture is particularly effective with its glittering leaf forms that catch the light and the sensory component with the sound. The back story with the dedication to the artists's mother was also most affecting. The work stands on its own merit and is unique in its design an execution.
