This year’s 2020 trophies were created by glass artists Joanna Bone and Aaron Micallef from their Brisbane studio. Inspired by the natural environment, form, surface and movement of light, their shared and complementary aesthetic approaches feed a synergistic cycle of inspiration, creating work that lures the viewer into its depths.
