BEAUTIFUL WOOD MADE INTO BEAUTIFUL THINGS
The New Forest and Hampshire County Show opens today for three days, last day is the 28th July.
The New Forest Trust stages an inspiring Fine Crafted Wood Exhibition each year in The Pavilion at the show and this year I have four of my pieces on display. The Tree Revealed Television Table, Contemporary Whatnot, Cushion on a Crate and Cantilever Cake Stand.
The Future of the New Forest is more certain and sustainable if its timber continues to be used to make useful things, because this ensures resources return to the Forest to pay for its conservation. Professionals are invited to exhibit pieces that demonstrate their styles, design and craftsmanship, while those in training are invited to demonstrate their skills by participating in the competition judged by three professionals.
All the pieces of furniture on show can be offered for sale. The public, adults and children, are also invited to vote for their favorite piece of furniture on display.
All this can be seen in the beautiful Pavilion at the Show – a fine piece of wood craftsmanship in itself – and a beautiful place to unwind and browse the inspiring pieces.
Head on over to see the display and I will be there all day on Thursday 28th July if you would like to talk to me about any of the pieces.
