IVANA PERKINS sculptor, created 'Brolga Brolga' a large water feature at Brolga Terrace,  Darling Park, Darling Harbour, Sydney.  Working mostly in bronze, on commissions, limited editions and an architectural door furniture collection which is soon to be released.

 

Born Ivana Ferreri in Cairo, Egypt, to Italian father, French mother and arrived in Melbourne Australia as a small child.

After spending most of her early working years in Advertising, Film and Television productions - Ivana began to develop her passion for sculpture by working after hours with a sculptor and attending evening classes in ceramics.  Initially her work was making clay sculptures, eventually she graduated to Metal Lost Wax Castings.

 

As her studio space was limited she created small sculptures & jewellery, in gold, silver and bronze which were sold through Makers Mark Gallery (Melbourne & Sydney).

 

Gradually increasing to life-size bronze pieces which she exhibited in her first solo exhibition at Makers Mark Gallery (Melbourne) with group exhibitions at Distelfink, Flinders Lane and Qdos Art Galleries.

 

The first public commission she received was for 530 Collins Street, Melbourne Australia,

A water feature in the atrium, 2 metres high consisting of 5 cast bronze Brolgas (Australian native stork-like bird).

 

Later, Ivana received another public commission, a water fountain in Brolga Terrace Darling Park, Darling Harbour, Sydney,

consisting of 10 cast stainless steel Brolgas, in the exterior forecourt of IBM Building

 

This coincided with the opening of her other project, starting the retail Art & Craft supplies store 'Handworks' in Prahran, conducting workshops and selling very contemporary craft & art supplies from 1992 to 2005, whilst still working in her sculpture studio.

 

As well as sculpture commissions and exhibitions, 

Ivana works with her partner, Designer/Artist Robert Perkins robertperkins.com.au

producing unique architectural door furniture.
