Rushes Eel Trap

Sculpture & Objects

Highly Commended

Hot blown glass, 34x77x34cm

This work pays tribute to the world's oldest living traditions of weaving and living sustainably with nature.

Inspired by the interplay of form, light and weave of traditional Aboriginal eel traps, it is blown from glass canes made with opaques overlaid with translucents to emulate the colours in dried bulrushes.
