2012 Update

admin August 14th, 2012

This year has started off rather slowly…the market for sales seems very soft so sales of my works is slow. As a result I have not been pushing very hard to produce new items. I have been doing a lot of planning and prepping of segmented bowls which are a great deal of fun.

Entered the WGO Annual Salon and had a real shocker when I won 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize in the Bowl and Platters category.

Awards

I recently uploaded some of my platter images to a well read website Wild Over Wood which is well read by all the wood turners in North America and received some wonderful accolades and very inspiring comments. As a result I was invited by the American Association of Wood Turners to submit some images for their Quarterly Magazine. A few months after (I had forgot all about it) I received the magazine with a 2 page editorial of my work. That was very motivating for me to pursue new ideas. See the new segmented bowls done this year in the Gallery section.

2011 A Year in Review

admin August 14th, 2012

It’s been really busy so I have not had a chance to do any updating and new cataloging for quite some time. This year passed rather quickly…had a few wins at the WGO and the TWG by winning a few ribbons for my platters. The Ontario Craft Council accepted a number of my pieces for their show cases. The Meta 4 Gallery in Port Perry and Gallery 747 in Tweed have a number of my pieces in their gallery. This year I have decided to change direction in my wood design site and will venture into a new rather time consuming and challenging section called Segmented wood turning. A lot of cutting and pre-prep before one can actually put a tool to the wood on the lathe. They will be up on the site soon.
