Plastic bottles made to look like antique china have earned Sarah Goffman $7000 and a two-week artist residency with Bundanon Trust, after winning the Meroogal Women's Art Prize on Wednesday.
Ms Goffman used repurposed plastics, permanent marker and clay to create a contemporary homage to the "ubiquitous blue willow-patterned plates or cups being used in Meroogal's past".
The annual non-acquisitive prize celebrates the creativity of female artists across the state in a range of mediums, such as ceramics, works on paper, textiles, weaving and woodwork.
Now in it's 18th year, artists were called to create work that responded to the historic Meroogal House in Nowra and its collection of treasures.
Sassy Park took out second prize, and Julie Paterson the Highly Commended Award.
After a record number of 300 entries, a selection of 40 pieces were chosen as finalists and are currently on exhibition at Meroogal until April next year.
