The all seeing eye has notice a Canberra mention on the Contemporary Canadian Glass Magazine.

In particular Melanie Long’s Canadian Cod Cabaret of Canberra on which they have this to say:

Melanie Long’s work conversely takes a more whimsical approach to her time in both countries. Melanie was first in Australia on a student exchange in 2008, and after graduating from ACAD the following year, she returned there to work as a studio assistant. Her piece, entitled Canadian Cod Cabaret of Canberra, is a culmination of her experiences in both Calgary and Canberra. Her hot sculpted fish, with big red lips and tall boots, have a burlesque feel to them particularly as they are displayed on small, glittery stages. These works are particularly tongue-in-cheek as both Calgary and Canberra are landlocked cities, with neither being particularly laden with sea life.

So there you go.
