The Clarence River Arts Festival is over for 2017.
We are quite pleased with ourselves.
Su managed to win 1st place and Peoples Choice in the Jewellery class with her Grey Hollows Series necklace and pendant. The piece featured blown hollow beads – some decorated with blown shards, some etched and some as they came out of the kiln.
Su also picked up 1st place in Craft for her Fishy Fantasy piece.
Of course, Su was very pleased, and very proud.
I managed to pick up a couple of Highly Commended awards. OK – no prizes, but not to be sneezed at. Some consider Highly Commended awards to be an ‘encouragement award’ – kind of well done but not good enough. But Highly Commended awards are given out at the judges discretion – they are only given if the work is of a high standard. For me, a Highly Commended award for my Moebius Strip in the Sculpture – Fine Arts section and a Highly Commended in Woodwork for my Banksia Hall Table are really better than I could have hoped for, especially given the quality of the competition.
Happy with that!
