However immaterial and intangible a substance the soul may seem, it is the infrastructure on which our personalities and our identity grows. Our soul changes throughout our lives and affects who we are as individuals and as humans.

I am excited to announce that I was presented with one of three awards at this years Graduate Metal exhibition for my pieces Obscurers of the Soul.
The awards were judged by Peter Bauhuis and Atty Tantivit and I'm honoured to have been selected and to receive a prize from Rapid Prototype for CAD design and printing. The exhibition was a wonderful night that surveyed recent graduates of tertiary institutions from Australia and New Zealand, all of whom deserve a huge congratulations.
Graduate Metal XIV is supported by:
Rapid Prototype, Pallion, A&E Metals, Koodak, Botobolar Wines Mudgee & Youdan Properties.
