Joanna Bone’s stunning, hand crafted glass vessels have become synonymous with the prestigious Asia Pacific Screen Awards ceremony, held annually at Brisbane City Hall.
In 2007, glass artist Joanna Bone was approached by organisers of the inaugural Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) to design and create distinctive award vessels. The results were embraced by both the organising body and award recipients and the artist has created awards for the event ever since.
This display, held over three weeks at Museum of Brisbane showcases the award vessels presented to APSA winners over the ceremony’s history from 2007 to 2014.
The 9th APSA ceremony will be held this year on Thursday 26 November.
