Once I received my certificates 1 and 2 the only next option at TAFE was to undertake a carpentry apprenticeship. Well that wasn't going to suit so I researched the next steps, from Men's Sheds to woodwork associations, none quite suiting due to culture, timing or location.
This school enables me to continue my sculptural practice within a safe and creative environment. The piece below looks deceptively simple, but the angles, design and trickery that goes into a piece like this enabled me to learn so much about the wood itself as well as the machines and hand tools.
I'm really excited about where this can go with 2018 all about exploring LED lighting powered by solar cells , utilising both branches and wood.
