Aimme Pradel and Katie Jacobs are artists living and working in Melbourne. Aimee Pradel is a botanical artist who creates stunning objects of enchantment from copper and clay. Her skills as a florist and a painter bring each piece to life. Her pieces are meticulously considered and created to beatify and bring aesthetic pleasure into your world. Her trophy series are stunning pieces of work that evoke whimsy and honour.  Katie Jacobs is a ceramic artist whose recent work investigates the sporting rituals of Australia, revealing a cultural obsession that borders on fetishistic. For this exhibition, she has focussed on collecting sporting language and sayings used by sports fans, commentators and players. She uses the vehicle of the trophy – a symbol of sporting achievement – to highlight invisible structures underlying sports culture, revealing what sentiments we value within and beyond this arena.
