Recipients of an Asia Pacific Screen Award will receive a unique work of art to acknowledge their achievement – a symbol common to all cultures and civilisation – the urn, the vase or, the vessel.
“Patterns, both complex and subtle, some seemingly random and yet repetitive, abound in our natural environment. Pattern pulsates througg our everyday, from vibrant insect skins to rich under-sea textures and the rhythm of the landscape. In creating these awards, inspired by pattern, I embody the complexities of my glass-working techniques in the intricacy of each piece’s surface. The mesmerising and sensual quality of the surface invites touch and allows the viewer to enjoy the work on a more intimate level.” – Joanna Bone RCA, Brisbane, Australia
