ASA Finalist in the Telstra Business Award 2014

signatureWe are excited and very proud to let everyone know that Aboriginal Steel Art is a 2014 Finalist in the Telstra Business Awards for Micro Business in Queensland.   We cannot believe we have gotten this far, but are ever so grateful to everyone that has been a part of our journey. A special mention to Indigenous Business Australia, Fortis One and Supply Nation, without which we would never of come so far.

We have worked extremely hard over the last 6 years to get ASA to where it is today, lots of long nights, early mornings and working weekends but we have a favourite quote – Dreams done work unless you do – and our dream is now our reality :)
We love everything about what we do and are passionate about growing and expanding over the coming years, offering employment for our Indigenous brothers and sisters.
Looking forward to the future!

New commemorative pins for ECU’s Indigenous Alumni

Below is a picture of us with the deadly Tracey Lee Edwards, Kurongkurl Katitjin’s Communications and Events Officer from ECU in Perth. Tracey worked in collaboration with us to develop a commemorative pin, only available to ECU Indigenous …Australian graduates. These custom, handmade pins serve as a symbolic and personal reminder of their journey at ECU. The shape of the pin represents one of the seven pillars on which a graduates’ name appears and subsequently, the unique cohort to which they belong. Indigenous graduates from ECU are encouraged to contact Kurongkurl Katitjin by email at rocksolid@ecu.edu.au to find out how to receive the unique pin.

"Our steel goanna climbing our patio wall is both unique and a great talking point with visitors. We love how the sunlight reflects off the metal at different times of the day. Thanks Wayne for a truly beautiful work of art."
