Congratulations to Sam Matthews - Winner of the Cairns Regional Council $3,000 prize at the 2014 - BIENNIAL NATIONAL CERAMICS EXHIBITION at the Cairns Regional Gallery. Sam is standing next to her entry, a set of wind chimes. Sam said: 'I was quite overwhelmed. I've only been doing pottery for 6 months!'.

Two other DAB tutors, Ellen Terrell and Liz Showniruk also won minor awards at the exhibition, so DAB was well presented.
