Exquisite Beauty  by Anthea  Slade

Sculpture from Bruno’s Sculpture Garden in Marysville

During the Black Saturday Fires of 7 February 2009, 90% of the township of Marysville was destroyed, including Bruno’s Sculpture Garden. I was heartbroken to hear of this tragedy as Bruno’s Sculpture Gardens is one of my favourite places. On the 27 December 2013 I got up the nerve to visit Marysville and Bruno’s Sculpture Garden for the first time since the fires. To my amazement a new gallery had been built and the gardens had been restored. Although some of the sculptures had been damaged and destroyed many had withstood the fires due to their resilience to great heat as they are made out of clay. I wanted to share a few of these beautiful sculptures with my friends on RedBubble.

Creating art and writing is like breathing to me, it keeps me alive. If I stop creating my world shrinks and contracts. When I start to create again it expands and is filled with colour. I feel whole. To create is to be completely, unabashedly alive.
