Inclusion 2003

glazed earthenware clay
North Coast Regional Botanic Garden
 Coffs Harbour 
New South Wales
This sculpture, created by the ceramic artists listed above has a nice story behind it .The artists consulted with the Coffs Harbour Support Services who work helping people with disabilities. Some community members who use the service were invited to join a workshop to contribute ideas for the sculpture.These people valued and felt joy at being included in the project ,hence the title.
The rock like forms of this sculpture have a lot of power. Underneath the blanket of clay lies a live form waiting to escape.
