New Works

Exhibition: February 20 - March 16, 2011 (Exhibition opening: Sunday 20 February 2011 at 2pm)

Artist Statement

In my new work, I still cannot resist the gourds that I grow and dry. I’ve tried to make sculptural pieces incorporating my love and worry for the environment around me.  I am always fascinated by the migratory birds that come so far to Corner Inlet.

I have ‘burnished’ using my pyrography drawing technique (using a hot nib). I think I will be exploring this further on recycled furniture and timber made objects.

    Hi, I would like to get in touch with Sue Gilford as I have done pyrography for the past twenty years and have not had much contact with other pyrographers. I have for the past two years been attempting portraits, however I find that my subjects need to have lived life for want of a better word as age in a subject helps as the young and nubile tend to make for a rather bland canvas. I would love to view more of Sue’s work and to talk with her. I occasionally visit the gippsland region and look forward to my next visit. Any help would be appreciated.
    Regards Jon Ward.
