Refined VII: Inspiration Exhibition Photos

One of my landscape brooches was featured in Refined VII: Inspiration, the seventh biennial Refined exhibition held this February at the Cole Art Centre @ the Old Opera House in Nacogdoches, Texas. The organisers have been kind enough to send some photos of the exhibition and opening reception, for those of us who couldn't make it, due to being on the other side of the world...

There's my brooch in the centre.

And this year's winning piece, Inspirational Ashes by Becky McDonah, an alumni of my alma mater, Arizona State University, and now Assistant Professor of Metals at ASU. Becky has been creating intricate reliquary containers for seemingly mundane objects since her postgraduate work at ASU. This one contains coals and ashes from a personally significant fire, and the marshmallow on the top opens to reveal another treasure - a real marshmallow
