This is my fifth year being involved in the Open Studio, how time flies. I enjoy meeting so many great people and sharing my creations with them.
I work with a wide variety of local timbers in particular those native to Western Australia, as well as olive and fruit wood sourced in this region. I’ve noticed that people enjoy giving gifts that are made from native timbers and finished with natural products. Being retired now, I spend many hours in my workshop making items as requested. This year there has been quite an interest in jewellery boxes and yarn bowls as well as pens, rolling pins, other bowls and items for entertaining.
