This is Transmission's first public outing and I'm delighted by the public's response. With so much of my work completed on my own in the workshop its great being back at exhibitions again and I'm really looking forward to another day of chatting to people. 😊
Im at @hever_castle for another three days (9.30 - 5.30) so come over to my stand (A54) and say hello.

I'm all set up and the public has started to arrive on the first day of the craft and design fair at Hever Castle. We are here from 9.30- 5.30, through to Sunday.

Apart from all the amazing work on display throughout the various marquees, the gardens are stunning so it is well worth a visit!

Today I arrived at @hever_castle
for the Craft and Design event. My stand is literally behind the canvas so if they keep the side open, this will be my view to the left of my stand.☺️

The exhibition starts on Thursday and I'm here until Sunday so pop in and say hello (I'm stand @54) near the @craftinfocus table.

This is my first time I've been on the road in three years and have brought three new sculptural pieces with me. People know me for working in hardwood, but lately I have dipped my toe into the word of cold casting (mixing resin with metal or stone powders) to create more sculptural pieces.

For this event I have brought two tables, (Beating Wings and Aguaviva), four shelves (Genie, Vitulus, Onda and Comet and the three new sculptures, (Abstract #1, Convergence and Transmission.

More updates to follow in the coming days.

I arrived at @hever_castle today to set up for the Craft and Design Fair. My stand is literally behind the canvas so if they keep the side open for extra ventilation , this will be my view to the left of my stand. 😁 It is a stunning venue and hope that I get to have a good look round before things get started on Thursday.

I'm here until Sunday so come and pop in and say hello. It's three years since I was last on the road so I have three new sculptures for this year's event.

People know me for working in hardwood but the last few years I have dipped my toe into the world of cold casting (mixing resin with metal or stone powder) and focused more on sculptural pieces.

For this event I have brought two tables (Aguaviva and Beating Wings from the Strata series), four shelves, (Onda, Vitulus, Genie, and Comet) and three sculptures, (Abstract #1, Convergence and my latest piece, Transmission.

I'm excited by the prospect of my first exhibition in quite a while. Hever Castle is the destination, from 9-12 September. This week I'm preparing Convergence and Abstract #1 for the show, mocking up my stand in the workshop as well as completing a commission. Busy times! @craftinfocus.

More design theft on Instagram (and Facebook and Etsy) !

If you feel strongly about design theft feel free to let Mywoodream know your feelings. For those of you who haven't seen this piece before, it is called Sidewinder and I designed and made it along with Aguaviva. Mywoodream are trying to pass both pieces off as theirs as well as using my photography for Sidewinder ! I've reported it to Instagram, Facebook and Etsy. #DesignTheft #intellectualpropertytheft #unscrupulous #copyright #copyrightinfringement

"What length Vitulus would you like?" Using some newly learned (basic) photoshop skills, (thanks to @mspstudio for the lesson), my latest client can see what different sizes will look like on their wall. The stretching process does deform the central section , but gives clients a sense of the space it would occupy.

I'm working on some Maple doors and I never tire of using a lovely sharp block plane! The joys of woodwork!

I've got to say, I'm loving the burgundy colour my client selected for her Vitulus shelves.❤️

I'm hand planing the back of the two Vitulus shelves that have been commissioned. Once I have created this reference point I will start carving the curved forms into the front edges. A lovely burgundy colour has been selected by my client to match the colour of her wall tiles.

Soooo good to finally get a few days holiday and nothing like the sea and local fauna to help to unwind. #farneislands
