Mother, father and three daughters came together to win the Fantasia
category and were chosen for acquisition at the annual Wearable Arts
Awards on Saturday. Mother is Colleen Byrnes, a veteran of the
awards and multiple prize-winner over the years. Husband Tony joined her
as creator and together they fashioned from metal pieces, test tubes,
wires and crystals exquisitely detailed bird-like forms to adorn Shae,
Bec and Nikki in their Fluoro Swan Trilogy (pictured).
The trio's appearance on stage was greeted with gasps of awe and
appreciation from the audience, the only time this happened en
masse  during this year's presentation, no doubt helping to assure
them of a win. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
