Suvira McDonald, Ceramic & Mixed Media Artist, Goonengerry Australia
Multi facetted Suvira McDonald is an award-winning Australian artist who may be found working in the forested hinterland of Byron Bay in northern NSW, Australia. His contemporary ceramic art constantly seeks new modes of expression; in his hands clay takes myriad forms. The large elemental constructed forms that find placement as garden sculpture, his unique ceramic landscapes, functional ceramics such as urns, platters, vases and the everyday coffee mug find uncommon form and excellence in his ceramic studio.

The festival is over.

Sculpture at the Writers Festival in Byron Bay proved itself by getting a lot of positive feedback by all concerned. The theme "passion" hit the mark. Writers came up to the organisers praising this years festival as one of the best in Australia. One John Pilger even said that it was one of the best in the world. That no doubt must be so by including sculpture as a complementing art form to the writers festival.

This years Judge Betty Churcher had a difficult time to decide on the winnners. Several rounds of the site and a couple of hours in the quietness of her hotel decided the winners.

1st prize. Daniel Clemmett, Embracing the Plateau

Dev Lengjel- all things sculpture


Sculpture is an ancient medium that has been used as a way of expressing ones beliefs and convictions as demonstrated by Sculptors in their works in ancient monuments for heroes, potentates and saints, as well as in contemporary public art.

It defines a place, can be community building or disappear with out a trace.

With the architecture of ancient civilisations reduced to ruins and their paintings lost without a trace sculpture has assumed a position as the art par excellence.

It offers the most objective evidence we have of mans power over the world.

While painting is apt to be travestied by time, sculpture more easily retains its original form and more often remains in the place for which it was made.

Could we imagine Florence without David or Melbourne without its Gateway? or living with out Giacometti's abstract figures or Andy Goldsworthy ephemeral installations?

Whether renaissance marble or contemporary public art, sculpture can provoke, but also enlighten, it can make you laugh and cry, it can make you marvel at the artistry, sneer with contempt or even leave you feeling vey little.

It celebrates a moment in time or just delights through form and beauty.
