Sculptor Norma Redpath (1928–2013) talks about the inspiration she derives from Australia's 'vast spaces and unique forms'. We see her creating works including the fountain for the Commonwealth Treasury in Canberra, which was modelled and cast at her studio in Milan, Italy. Redpath worked primarily with bronze and wood. The NFSA's YouTube Channel has the whole film Sculpture Australia 69 in full.
