Legacy supports the families of veterans who have given the ultimate sacrifice from all wars and conflicts and for the families of members of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) who are incapacitated or suffer from psychological issues.
My favourite in the collection is 'SEAt’ by James Gordon (above)
For the second year in a row, gorgeous artist and creative genius James Gordon has lent his support to a charity close to his heart. “It’s a play on words “SEAt” and that’s about it! The fact that I love the ocean and things of the sea is probably something that influenced the end result, however it’s fairly much the word. My chair is made from French paper, perspex rod, watercolour, nylon thread and ‘unreal’ pearl.”
