The weeks before Christmas I was busy designing a few new pieces, orders and a TV interview with Breakfast Television in Edmonton and an interview with Han TV (both thanks to the Alberta Craft Council) that will be posted at a later date. As mentioned in my previous blog the Alberta Craft Council had asked me to be the Artist Spotlight for December and I am truly thank for for this opportunity as it helped me think out of the box and begin my Architectural Collection as you can see from some of my latest pieces above. You can check out my interview on Breakfast Television below which shows some of my work at the Alberta Craft Council.
