Lillian Forrester has recently heard that she will be included in an upcoming Lark 500 series book.

Lillian made a few pieces last year and submitted them to lark books call for entry. In February 2010, “Overseer” was donated the to the Burlington Art Centre for their annual Art Auction. The photo of the piece was included in the BAC publicity folder, newspaper and web PR and it ultimately sold for $275 at the auction.

Lillian just received notification from Lark, almost a year after submission, that this piece “Overseer” had been accepted. Past presenter to KPG Anne Armstrong has also had a horse hair raku piece accepted.

Congratulations, Lillian!
