We cooperate as an association to advance the practice of sculpture and the reputation and appreciation of sculpture and sculptors in the community. This is regardless of whether or not we make a living from sculpture and regardless of our preferred style or medium. To this end we support artists’ moral rights, we advocate a professional attitude to the production and presentation of work and encourage the artistic and intellectual stimulation of interaction amongst artists of all persuasions.

From Amy Cohen:
I am a ceramic sculptor based in Melbourne. My works are hand-built out of clay and go through multiple firings to achieve different layers of colours and textures. My forms are inspired by the natural world, sea shells in particular. I find their proportions and fluidity captivating, and feel that my personal interpretations represent a self portrait of my state of mind and emotions at various times in my life.
Amy’s work was highly commended at MIF&GS and you can see an image in this newsletter.
Todd Stuart: "Morphing Shell"

And from Todd Stuart:
After living for 6 years & running a business working on commercial projects in the Dubai market, I returned (11 months ago) to reside full time in Melbourne with my wife & two daughters. I am working full time expanding my career as a sculptor now & Australia is a new market for me to explore again. In this regard I am very happy to get involved & acquainted with the members as a new member of Sculptors Victoria to learn as much as I can & see what I have to offer in this market.
