RAV - Illuminated by Fire - Kyneton http://www.rav.net.au/storyboard/blog/kyneton Kathryn Portelli worked with the community to design and create personalised ashes vessels which were exhibited together with seven illuminated sculptures. This project brought together a collection of remarkable sculptures in Australia’s first ever exhibition dedicated to vessels made especially to contain the cremated ashes of people and places. This is a body of work that provokes thought about what it means to represent a life artistically, encompassing eight individually personal objects rich in storytelling detail. The project launched Sunday November 7 at 2.00pm at TJ Scotts, 5 Piper St Kyneton. At Fed Square, the ashes vessels were displayed in the BMW Edge, around the walkway facing out towards the Yarra. See the program here: Kyneton program   en-au 60 Art4ashes in BMW Edge at Fed Square!

Set in the stunning BMW Edge theatre, 16 remarkable vessels made up the art4ashes collection of mosaic sculptures.
