2008 Winter Collection 1

I definitely not trying to confuse people, but it is winter here down under and i have my eyes on this beautiful wooden beads for a while now.
The temperature start dropping outside and apart from feeling like hugging a cup of hot chocolate, i remembered the delicious brown, chocolate kind of colour Ebony beads and rush in to get some supply. Inspired by this new wooden beads, i incorporated them with some of my designs from other pieces........

There you go, my first winter collection!
They are now available in Beehive Gallery (443 King street, New Town, Sydney), and Etsy.

My Ikea red cabinet

My mother's day came early, we went to ikea and got this to put on my balcony studio, to show off some of my paintings, to store youngman's growing toy collections, to just enjoy the beautiful red.....

Mr. Silvermonk was very impressed with the high quality and the intelligent way that it all put together.......

A truly Intelligent Product Design!

Random Act of Kindness

“A time to be open, to act upon thoughts of hope and goodness”.

It was almost a year ago since I made my first custom cufflinks for a friend. I was waiting for the right moment (or the right mood so to speak) to design my very first pair of cufflink.

And here it is....

The "Random Act of Kindness"

This pair of Cufflinks has been stamped with letters spelling the phrase “Random act of kindness” The letters are arranged randomly and has been oxidized to give it an antique look!

I am very happy with the design idea and how it turns out.
I am planning to explore the random text concept further down the track.....

I promise i will not let you wait for another year for the next new pair of cufflinks!

I made it......

....into Trunkt. I am sure some of you already know what Trunkt is! For those that you don't know, well, it is the "Buyer's Guide to Independent Art and Design" and "a Collective of Amazing Artists"

There are only 3 images in my my Portfolio at the moment. In the coming week or so i will upgrade my account and start to adding more images to my Portfolio! I am really happy.....

Now, we are talking, for me there is nothing more happier than just simply sitting in front of my work bench and made something out of nothing! By "nothing", what i mean is i did not know before hand what i was going to made and it somehow just happened...... Like the Surf Ring in this case!

The Surf Ring really made me happy!
I like everything about it, the colour, the shape, and the movement......
