The Project

This project was commissioned by the State Government to support local Indigenous and Torres Straight artists through recognition of their cultural value to the school community through the display of indigenous artistry using the medium of glass.

All of the balustrade panels including the landing panels, (some of which weighed 270kg) had to be carefully set out during installation to ensure the intricate design of the artistry was correctly aligned and represented correctly the indigenous art and their community.

This required the director John Hyde to work closely with the artist and the architects to deliver a glass solutions that would achieve their cultural and community vision.

The end result is an outstanding example of glass being used to represent indigenous Australians in the community for many years to come.
