FIRST EVER WOODPOP SURFBOARDS COMING TOGETHER . . .

So excited about this project - the first WOODPOP SURFBOARD is becoming a reality !!  On initial investigation - it looked impossible - wooden surfboards are extremely expensive to make and you can't apply marquetry to complex curves (surfboards being both concave and convex at the same time).  But not accepting that it couldn't be done - we embarked on 18 months of research, testing and experimentation, and after a few wrong turns and a lot of sweat and effort - I can happily say - that IT CAN BE DONE AND WE HAVE DONE IT !!!  MARQUETRY SURFBOARDS ARE A REALITY!  Pics of the finished boards soon . . .

TROMPE L'OEIL ROOM DIVIDER

Just finished oiling these huge puppies!  8 ft x 3ft.  Big props to Joseph Mackey at Adam Richards Architects for the design.  They are going to become the doors of a cupboard / wardrobe masquerading as a room divider.

LONDON DESIGN FAIR

So all ready and set for London's Design Fair at The Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane.  Just about all set up . . .  Trade only on Thurs - then open to public Fri, Sat and Sun.

SIGNED AND ORIGINAL

Extremely chuffed to have two pieces in the super snazzy Signed and Original show this Feb 11th!  If you're in London and so inclined, you can request an invite from their website here.  Well worth a visit - they curate the most amazing collection of one-off pieces of art and curiosities.

CIRCUIT OF WALES

Oh Happy Days !!  It looks like they want a bunch of my pieces up at the new state of the art motor racing track that is Circuit of Wales.  Valentino Rossi will finally be mine !!
