THIS WEEK WAS ABOUT
This year hml have made it onto the Phillipo Raphael Fresh Award selection committee... what does this mean we hear you ask? Well, it means the next month will be spent frantically heading out to all the graduate shows trying to scope out the freshest selection of crafty student work. There's big money on offer for the winner ($5000) so the competition will be running hot. Needless to say hml will be run ragged and living on cheap wine and finger food for the next few weeks.
Our first picks are the 'Flat Pack' and 'Blooming Lotus' chairs (above) by Prapass Chairat from the Department of Built Environment @ RMIT Diploma of Arts Furniture Design program which waws on show at Federation Square, and we love em'. Now a disclaimer, just because we love them doesn't mean they're going to win the grand prize, and by showing them here we're not trying to curry favour for them. Our aim is to show you some of the best graduate works around and tell you where you can see them. It's a great time of year, all the exhibitions are free and some of the work will floor you!
