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.

Rod says he prefers to build rather than carve, and prefers independence from a foundry. His process involves drawings, then a Marquette in industrial plasticine with steel armatures. Templates are made on paper, enlarged 3 times, and then wooden templates crated on chipboard. Steel is cut with a plasma torch, and then a battle royal starts to form the steel as in the Marquette, and weld the whole together so we can’t see the joins.
Rod started with very figurative work, became very abstract in his RMIT studies, and is now most happy with a combination of figurative and abstractive elements.
His “Young Lady” won the ASV Margaret Gunnerson-Thomas prize in 2006. He has been a loyal ASV supporter, was President for a year, and has also run various ASV activites.
Pressure of farm work inhibits production of sculpture at times.
Keep it up Rod! Even if neither major political party seems to have a clear policy on supporting the Arts.

Entries closed on Friday, 16 July.
The Tulip Festival – in Silvan in the Dandenong Ranges - has been well-established for over 50 years, and runs for four weeks from mid-September to mid-October. The Festival attracts about 50,000 visitors to the many organised activities and popular events.
This year an Acquisitive Award of $7,500 is being offered by Tesselaar to the sculptor winning the Tesselaar Sculpture Prize. A People’s Choice Award of $500, as voted by visitors to the Festival, will also available. One lucky visitor to the Festival will also be selected to win a voter’s prize. Organised by Tesselaar, and with some assistance from the Association of Sculptors of Victoria, the Tesselaar Sculpture Prize is becoming an established component of Victoria’s arts calendar.
Rachael Pearce, marketing co-ordinator at Tesselaar, said, “As part of continuing our program of developing the Tulip Festival we have been very pleased with the development of the exhibition and competition. The intention is to grow the prize into a significant annual sculpture event and we hope that this year’s increase in prize-money is a step in that direction.”
The Tesselaar Sculpture Prize is a wonderful opportunity for visitors to the Tulip Festival to view and appreciate a range of sculptural styles and mediums in a unique and colourful outdoor setting.
Visitors will be privileged to view sculptures created by some of Victoria’s finest sculptors.
The Tesselaar Tulip Festival will be open each day between 10:00am and 5:00pm, from 16
