Peter Tilley, 'Shards with leaves and flowers' 1991 image

Currently hanging in Maitland Regional Gallery’s exhibition of collection highlights (from 1957 - 2015) is Peter Tilley’s relief work ‘Shards with leaves and flowers’.

As the exhibition placard reveals, this piece is composed of century old fragments of bone china collected from near the mouth of the Yarra River in Victoria, and was a joint winner of the Maitland Art Prize in 1992.
