KOG Spine 2021 is a an illuminating structure whose delicate ribs belie it's inherent, bold physicality. Home is where we find our comfort, or soul, our selves. What we surround ourselves with is entirely individual.

Time for reflection used to be an extremely rare commodity. It's not easy to stop and smell the roses when you're always running late for the bus. Now, it should be a public order to dedicate some time to appreciate the world around us. Time between Teams calls can be spent gazing idly around at the world. To appreciate the curves, the intersections, the proportions.

I can now go from sketch to prototype within a couple of hours if my time-management is carefully planned. The domestic surrounds provide a safe space to explore the possibilities of what the outside world will look like when this is all over.

Time for reflection used to be an extremely rare commodity.

The Warrandyte area near where I live always displays a calm and gentle bohemian air. The Stonehouse Gallery is a special Makers Gallery and Shop that exhibits local designers and is always worth a drop-by.

My Living Room is my favourite space in the house. I can interact with the family whilst tinkering with the newly-created components of my next work. The views of the surrounding bushland through the windows calms and inspires. Always a space of joy and inspiration.

My favourite object is my Boston KS Stainless steel pencil sharpener. Of course a stationery item needs speed lines!
