Powerhouse Museum International Lace Award

April 30, 2010

My entry into the 2010 International Lace Award has been sent off…

The aim of the Award is to encourage contemporary design and challenge conventional notions of lace and its application in the areas of fashion, the built environment and digital multimedia.

Professional and amateur artists, designers and practitioners can apply and finalists will be exhibited at the Powerhouse Museum and up to win a share of $40,000 (Australian dollars) in prize money.

Fingers crossed!

I should mention, the beautiful image below is a photograph of a piece created by lacemaker, and Lace Award judge, Rosemary Shepherd. Rosemary used bobbin lace-making techniques to painstakingly interweave copper wire. It took about 30 hours to complete. The resulting piece reflects the aim of the Lace Award in attracting both traditional, and non-traditional, lace techniques and concepts.

      Thanks for the feedback on the blog Jay Dee… But, just so there’s no confusion, the gorgeous image is the work of Rosemary Shepherd. I would be humbly proud should my proposed project have as beautiful an outcome as Rosemary’s work!
