Winner of the $2000 River of Art prize is ceramic sculptress Jenni Bourke from Narooma, with her art work Not a Game

The work is a representation of earth and comprises of three ceramic balls, spray-glazed with six glazes. 

Jenni says while the balls look like they could be used for fun in a game, they represent our world and are a message to start caring for our planet and environment; to stop environmental destruction and to take the environmental issues we face seriously.
