Sculpture in the Vineyards 2014

Our work Fountain of Zero has been installed in the Sculpture in the Vineyards exhibition of 2014. It is a work about the environment and reuse of materials as well as a work about creating something unique and distinctive that will sit well in the environment it is installed within.

This work has been in the making for a few months now and the installation is a culmination of a lot of engineering, design and craftsmanship (can we say craft person?). After the original idea was conceived the work slowly took shape through imagination and creative engineering, as well as sheer determination.

A major part of the work is the top half of soft drink (soda) bottles which we had to cut and shape to fit our needs. To do this, we had to collect over 150 bottles through consuming large quantities of soft drink and mineral water as well as through raiding recycle bins in our neighbourhood.

The exhibition will be officially opened on 25 October 2014 and will continue for around a month. Come and see our work as well as the other wonderful sculptures and installations dotting the vineyards around Wollombi, NSW. Our work is installed at the Undercliff Winery, 152 Yango Creek Road,  in Wollombi.
