What Jody and I are up to and Koomen Gallery Items for Sale

At present I am preoccupied preparing for my forthcoming exhibition Forest to Furniture: Ideas in the Making, an Arts Council England supported project coinciding with my celebrating 40 years of furniture making! This will take place at the River Rowing Museum 14 February - 7 June 2015.  
Jody Koomen has had a fruitful and successful year developing his own furniture design and making direction, which he was able to exhibit and demonstrate at this year's Art in Action (Waterperry, Oxford). He is very busy working on a number of commissions.

For these reasons we will not this winter be able to host a specific, seasonal open day.
However, we do have some ready-made, lovely items for sale in our Koomen Gallery at Wheelers Barn, Checkendon.  
Below are shown images of most of the items for sale at the gallery.

You are most welcome to drop by the workshop/gallery if you wanted to have a look or say hello but please telephone first to check someone is available to let you in!
