Master Artisan status

I am pleased to announce being awarded Master Artisan status from the Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council. After presenting examples of my work and speaking about my craft before the Standards Committee earlier this month, I was delighted to receive this letter confirming my acceptance as a master. Mastering anything requires a serious commitment of time and resources and it was no different in my case; there were no shortcuts such as a genius might enjoy, just some 30,000 hours of making things from wood. My thanks to all who had a hand in making this progress possible. DSCF3111
