William Ricketts dreamed of a population united and respectful of indigenous cultures and the environments of this country. He worked ceaselessly towards this goal. He expressed himself principally through ceramic sculpture depicting aspects of indigenous Australia. The largest single collection of the sculptures enchant a forest on Victoria’s Mount Dandenong; his for over 59 years and now his permanent resting place. The site is called William Ricketts sanctuary. It is visited by tens of thousands of people every year and has achieved worldwide acclaim
