Millers Acre and "Vessel"

Millers Acre Centre - Taha o te Awa (Nelson Visitor Centre) was selected as the winner of New Zealand Creative Places Award 2006's Built Environment: City and Regional Councils category in July. The cost of the sculpture, "Vessel", designed by local jeweler and sculptor Gavin Hitchings, caused much heated discussion in the Nelson Mail for a couple of days. More about entering Nelson.


  1. Welcome to the daily photo family and greeting from Greenville, South Carolina in the US. Best wishes on your daily photo blog.

  2. I think this sculpture is wonderful. Greetings from Stavanger and welcome to DP family :)

  3. Thank you. Yes, we like the sculpture, but we may be biased because we know the designer, and he's a very gentle soul. But if the town's most serious concern is whether a piece of sculpture is appropriate or not, well, it's not a bad town to live in, I guess.
