Prominent Melbourne ceramicist Vipoo Srivilasa was distressed by the unfolding tragedy, and has organised an auction featuring the donated works of well known and award-winning artists to raise funds for The Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal (www.qld.gov.au/floods/donate.html).

Srivilasa's call-out for his friends and colleagues to donate has exceeded his expectations, and he is currently fielding expressions of support from as far away as North America. "The response has been overwhelming! I was planning for maybe twenty artists to join me but I reached forty in no time. It's turning into a much bigger project than I expected", he admits.
