Curious Glass – From the Cabinet of Curiosities
This wonderful piece of kiln formed glass has been created by Lake Tuggeranong College student Eli Williams as part of his assignment the “Cabinet of Curiousities”. Eli assembled two pieces of ordinary glass, like that found in a window and he placed a large dry leaf which has formed a bubble when fired at 820 degrees Celsius. If you look carefully you can see the remains of the leaf trapped forever inside the glass. The glass inclusion will form the basis of Eli’s investigative drawing in his Visual Diary.

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) started as the Week of Prayer for Reconciliation in 1993 (the International Year of the World’s Indigenous Peoples) and was supported by Australia’s major faith communities. In 1996, the Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation launched Australia’s first NRW. In 2000, Reconciliation Australia was established to continue to provide national leadership on reconciliation. In the same year, approximately 300,000 people walked across Sydney Harbour Bridge as part of NRW, to show their support for reconciliation.
Today, NRW is celebrated by businesses, schools and early learning services, organisations, and individuals Australia-wide. Hundreds of NRW events are held each year
