The Oliveti ‘Best in Show” Award Trophy was created by Peter Jane, wood turner and sculptor in 2013.
With the help of the Auckland Cornwall Park supervisor some 100 year old olive branches from the park’s olive trees were provided for Peter to work with.
He formed the bowl shape, retaining the original bark textures which he smoothed and polished. The droplet was created separately and attached inside the bowl. The base is also olive wood but the stand is swamp kauri with rewarewa corners, giving the trophy a good Kiwi base!
On the reverse side is a plaque with the names of each annual competition winner. The award winners get to keep the trophy for one year.
