We won the prestigious Best Art Style award at the 22nd Texas Furniture Makers Show for our innovative accent table. Southern Cross is a homage to Australia and its Aboriginal people. This unique table features a hand painted night scene and a spectacular slice of Red Gum Eucalyptus burl. The juried exhibition is a statewide competition featuring handcrafted pieces and is sponsored by the Kerr Arts & Cultural Center in Kerrville, Texas. Only 50 to 60 pieces are chosen for exhibition each year from numerous entries. The purpose of the show is to present the work of Texas Furniture Makers to the public in a formal gallery setting and bring national attention to their one-of-a-kind handmade works of art.
This year’s expert panel of judges included Fine Woodworking editor, Anissa Kapsales, as well as award winning furniture makers, Brandon Berdoll and Jim Wallace.
