Husband and wife Warren Pickering and Anna Small were the joint winners of last year's OZ Minerals Copper Sculpture Award.
The judges were attracted to Warren and Anna’s complementary copper sculpture designs that are inspired by nature. Warren’s dazzling blue copper sculpture design is reminiscent of a rolling wave in the ocean. Anna’s intricate copper sculpture is reminiscent of a native Australian flower. The large copper sculptures will be oxidised to produce a blue/green patina and will be elevated on a jarrah plinth.
