Royal Queensland Show (Ekka) Millinery sections were this year supported by The Millinery Association of Australia. There were several categories open to milliners across the Arts and Craft section. I placed third in the Class 151 Wearable Art Headwear – Themed – Nature in Bloom with a jade Claura Saucer.
The piece was perfect for the section with the silk flowers hand painted to match the pinopok base. The edges of the piece are smooth with all finishes concealed. The saucer shape frames the face and provides and base for the flowers to sit upon.
