Victorian Craft Awards

Katrina Tyler — 'Urban Fringe Vessels', 2021

$2,200
Urban Fringe Vessels explore the relationship between the industrial forms and expanses of grassland that form the landscape of inner western Melbourne. The stark juxtaposition of these opposing features highlights the complexities facing our built environment and precious remnant habitat.
