Sculpture By The Sea

Hi Dolls! Well in a follow up from yesterdays post on the partnership between Kailis Pearls and Sculpture by the Sea I thought it fitting to let you know about my visit to the exhibition at the beach!

I spent the most gorgeous Sunday evening down at Cottesloe beach with a friend, marvelling at all the talented works of art, watching the sun set over the ocean and enjoying some yummy fish n chips. Spectacular!

It has become a tradition every year to visit the Sculptures and this year didn’t disappoint! There are over 70 different displays, all wonderful in different ways, this making it very hard for me to pick just one favourite, so in true Courtney style I have chosen a few.

This sculpture was so interesting and different. lots and lots of long bamboo sticks with mini windmill like things on the top frantically spinning in the breeze. It created the most incredible sound. As we went at night time it was even more magical, walking through the fields of bamboo with the sounds of the clicking, it was so relaxing, i can’t even describe!

I thought this sculpture was so cute!! They remind me of these little figurines we used to see at Mundaring Weir when I was a child. And I love the way the artist has tied in the beach theme with the bathers, and lifesaving outfit. So fun and clever!

This one was so beautiful and I love the way the artist has thought about how the natural elements would work in with the materials used to make it. Positioned in exactly the right spot, the sunlight shines through the glass. As we were there at sun set it was beyond stunning!

I loved this piece because it was so colourful! It reminded me of doing yoga in a tropical place like Bali or Malaysia.

This one was a fave of mine because it was so quirky. A giant skeleton hanging off a very tall ladder, facing the sea. Kind of creepy but very cool at the same time. It was a favourite with the kids, I watched them all having a great time and trying to touch it’s feet.

There are so many more incredible sculptures, and photo’s really don’t do them justice so pop down to Cottesloe beach this week and have a look for yourself before they disappear for another year! And remember after you have visited the exhibition pop into the Cottesloe Surf Lifesaving Club or the Kind Street Kailis store and vote for your favourite sculpture to go into the draw to win $1000 Kailis voucher!!
