Well it’s been interesting transferring drawings to readymade objects to say the least. But so far so good with the exception of a few accidents which kept delaying the project. There is nothing like nearing completion only to see it fall apart in your hands ha ha
This sculpture was made for the ‘Woof Woof’ exhibit at Gallery Yampu, Port Adelaide for the annual SALA festival. Opens August 9th and I hope to see you there!
Had these stools hanging around the studio for months before this project, it’s always a good feeling when an object gains a new life. The funny thing is that the final design turned out to be the simplest idea but came about last during the brainstorming process.
A bit of a delayed post as I think the social media game wiped me out last year. This was a great project to design, make and it included a bit of learning too. No nails or screws in this one folks, just dowel joins which for me at least results in a much cleaner finish. Also for once there was just enough timber to complete the piece!
Here was a fun little project which allowed me to use a new gadget, and I love those! Especially when they actually work haha. I wanted to use dowel joins only in this quite minimal piece as I like the finish better than caps or putty. I’m aiming to use this technique as much as possible in the future. The orange oil finish made the piece blend in with the floor boards which was unexpected but the customer is happy 😊
Join us at the National Railway Museum Port Adelaide this weekend, one of my pieces is included in the event 😃👌🏻🚞🎨
Or more accurately a series of murals done throughout the building over the course of a months or so. Cutting the stencils actually took longer than to paint but that’s part of the process. Now I’ve got a series of motifs to use indefinitely or at least until the material breaks down.
The beauty of using metallic paints is that some murals are only really visible at certain angles or times of day. It requires repeat views, making it a process of gradual discovery.
