I am just getting a moment to write a post after returning from the KIGA 2014 exhibition opening at Kirra Galleries in Melbourne.
Although it would have been a great honor to have won the award for this prize, I am happy to say that it was awarded to Robert Wynne for his work titled, "Raven's Clutch". Congrats to him! The piece is a nice one and he is a great guy.
To see a bit more of the exhibition, check out the show catalog here and a short national news segment done about the show here. Here are some additional images (and a short video) of my entry for the KIGA 2014 exhibition titled "The Acquisition":
On the day that I returned from Melbourne, I had the great pleasure to present a talk at Questacon (The National Science and Technology Centre) here in Canberra. This talk was part of their Torque talk series about science in the everyday by people who are not necessarily scientists. The title of my talk was "The Beautiful Science of Glass". In it, I showed some images of projects and pieces that I have worked on and discussed three scientific glass topics related to this type of work (why glass is transparent and solid, what can a fracture in glass tell us and how long does glass last). I appreciate Questacon's interest, everyone who was able to make it to the event and anyone who was able to make it through all of my rambling. Here is a shot of the night:
