Perpetual, in conjunction with Sculpture by the Sea, is delighted to award the three Australian sculptors, Phil Spelman (ACT), Lou Lambert (WA), and Tom de Munk-Kerkmeer (WA) with a scholarship of $30,000 each to further their artistic development.

The Scholarship will assist Phil with research into the possibilities of fabricated sheet elements derived from decorative architectural iron work.  He will also use the Scholarship to visit formative sculpture galleries including the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington DC, the Guggenheim, and MOMA in New York, together with the extensive iron collection held at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.
