I had the opportunity to take a few photos last week so here is a selection. Some of the shots are not so good, so please forgive! Since I am posting my own pieces as projects, I am only showing work from other exhibitors. This should give a fair idea of what we get up to down here in the Southern Cape!

Chair by Richard Henley. White Alder and hand painted leather.

Squiggle Back Chair by Richard Henley. Cape beech and hand painted leather.

Pink Ivory Inlays on Cape beech by Richard Henley.

Chair by AJ Lombard. African mahogany and Stainless steel.

Console Table by Rob Prange. Sapele mahogany.

Dining table by Richard Henley. White Alder on cross banded, book matched White Pear.

Pedestal by Hennie Goddard. Blackwood.

Turned and carved vessels by Wally Rossini. Wally is already 75 years old, has limited vision but he just keeps on doing the most intricate work!

Turned vessel by Wally Rossini. Ambroyna burl and African Blackwood.

Turned vases by Dave Stephenson. Red Ivory and African Blackwood.

A selection of smaller turnings by Dave Stephenson.

Fine veneer inlays by Richard Henley. Stinkwood and maple.

No wonder your works have been selected to be displayed and why you got an extension to display longer! These are all incredible works of art and I thank you for showing them.

it’s good you are in such talented company

i think it brings the awareness
and the prices up to where they belong

it’s hard to sell fine work
if everyone else’s is run of the mill flea market

and it looks like you have some equal minded inteligent artists to
talk and hang with

are you friends with some of these guys
or is it strictly profesional

Looks like you are hanging out with a pretty nice group of woodworker/artists. I’m fascinated with the 75 y.o. turner Wally, That’s an amazing piece. Thanks for giving us a little more insight into the exibition.
