Long standing friends who loved our own wedding ring story, now they have their own version.

Bh Daisy design – Six larger (22mm) and two smaller flower each fitted to stainless steel round wire stem with small link attachment to allow slight movement. 925 Silver with matt and burnished finish, smaller flowers have teal blue/red finish.
Roy also had a stick pin made with the teal blue flower for himself.
This public art project has been under wraps since 2014, we were one of fifty-four artists to tender an EOI (expression of interest) then one of eight shortlisted. Three made the final cut to have their concepts accepted and be allocated a location. Our work was to be located in the magnificent 10 metre high foyer.
We collaborated throughout with curator; Jacqueline Armitstead, architect; Mark Damant, engineers; Rod Bligh and Simon Lewis, fabricators; Dee Wallace and John Edwards at G&B Stainless. Installation day in September 2016 went perfectly and our group of three works entitled: ‘New Nature’ has already drawn considerable attention and positive reaction from our client and building visitors.
The scale model for #3 is shown on the polished stainless steel light well, beside the spiral strip prior to being tacked to the vector cut spine. All three sculpture elements are laid out for production sheets here, here and here. Each unit in elevation is here, here, and here.
Two of Barbara’s elements on model #2 showing the different materials and treatments she has designed and specified to emulate nature, below and above ground.
This secure and technologically smart building will house the office of the Queensland Premier, the Queensland Cabinet and parliamentary bureaucrats. The ground floor and foyer are all considered public spaces so do drop in and coffee-up under this last shot above, of model #3.
