Great News.. (for me)

Well today I found out about the juried exhibition in Hobart, Tasmania, and I got in. I received an email from the event organizers telling my that I had made the cut. There were 24 entries and they narrowed it down to 12 to participate in the show. Needless to say I am extremely excited to just be in the show. There are some really big names in Australian Furniture Designers in this show. Leon Saduben who was a guest instructor at our school last year. Along with a few designers from Tassie here, Kevin Perkins and Brenon Sharpe. So I am just happy to be in such company. But the 1 in 12 chance to win 7000.00 dollars isn't bad either.

I was told that the judges are interested in me displaying my Nalu Stools. So I will either make a few new ones, all from different timbers, or hope to possibly display my chair. ( when it's done ).

On the chair front, I spent the weekend redesigning it, because I just wasn't feeling the last one. And I should have it done here by the end of the week. I will take a few pictures of the progress. I actually hope to make a short video on the design and making process of this piece. So we'll see if that happens. Anyways, until next time.
