An audio-visual presentation

I just love free stuff online. Don't you? Here is a neat little service that made it easy for me to create an audio-visual presentation of some of my work. Enjoy!

The service is called Animoto, and the music is Coquetry by McKenzie Stubbert.

The latest crop of dibbers

Many people believe that I spend hours working at the lathe, but the reality is that woodturning is more like gardening. Here is the latest crop of garden dibbers emerging from a bin full of wood shavings.

I'm just about to go and harvest this crop and treat them with linseed oil, then they will be ready to go to market.

May markets

This coming Saturday (May 17, 2008) I will be at Moncton Market again, and the weekend after is the opening of Antigonish Farmer's Market, so I hope to be there for that.

I'm not sure how the rest of the year is going to pan out. Ideally I would like to be at Antigonish every other weekend, then alternate between Moncton and Tatamagouche on the other weekends. This takes a fair bit of co-operation on the part of the market managers, and although they always do their best to accommodate my requests, I will have to wait and see how things work out.

I also hope to get the studio open at Seafoam this weekend. It's a bit of a mess at the moment, cluttered with product packed in boxes ready to go to the market, and boxes of part finished salad bowls. Still, I hope to find space for it all somewhere very soon, and can clean the gallery and put some work on the shelves.

See you soon I hope!
