Progress and almost done.....

Fully extended at 10 1/2 feet, I managed to only have 3/8" sag in the middle thanks to custom modified extensions

Yes, its a mess but its my mess and it feels like the good kind, the productive kind!  Anyone who works with Walnut knows the 'black hand' phenomenon, same happens with White Oak.

The first coat of oil is always ecstasy - don't ask me to elaborate further......

'Sense of Silence' showes at the HD Expo in Las Vegas

Yesterday we shipped out the 'Sense of Silence' to Las Vegas, along with 4 pieces from the 'Black Tusk' Series and some of our white 'Tessellating heXagons'  as contrasting platforms for our modern booth design.  (Reading this now has a curious ring to it - Silence in Vegas should be very interesting).

Please come to meet me at the show, booth 5213, and experience our work in person. I would enjoy discussing what exactly we can do for you and the pieces on display. As is with most sculptures, photography just don't quite due them justice. 

Respectfully,
Nicolas Meyer

Crating this bird was a little different than packing square furniture.  It was suspended to take all weight off of its legs.

Strapping it down to the braces secured it from bouncing during shipping.

Where we live & work

When we moved to the Sunshine Coast 10 years ago, it was a choice of life style. This environment in which we live, enriched and inspires us, influences our work, as much as everything else in our lives. We thought we should share some impressions of this life style, rather than only show our work.

Hope you enjoy.

Alpine Modern

I had the pleasure of getting interviewed by Sandra Henderson from Alpine Modern a few months ago. The article she wrote is one of those few, in which I really recognize myself. She did an amazing job capturing what drives me and what Jess and I do here in the woods (read by clicking on the images).

Thank you Sandra.
