QLD Export Awards 2011

Studio Sam and seven other leading Queensland practitioners were invited by Artisan to showcase some works at The Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards 2011.  Some of our Sienas and book sculptures were used as table centre pieces and provided “a fabulous talking point for the 800+ guests”.

The awards which are Queensland’s highest recognition of exporting achievement were held on October 20 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

What a Gem

Date 2008

Sam was commissioned to custom make a 64 book Bookscreen for a Melbourne couple. The screen was to sit in their living room and was to match 2 existing red chairs.  After visiting the couple’s home Sam prepared a mock-up using yellow, red, pink and purple books.  The client loved the proposal and ‘Ruby the Bookscreen’ was created.
