Welcome to our new regular feature
In order to add a new area of interest to the forums and to encourage interaction between the different forum sections, the forum members are introducing this 'Members' Choice' thread to act as a showcase for a piece of work chosen by a member each week as their 'piece of the week'.
This week's members' choice is 'Brooches & Shawl Pins' by Nick Simpson, which was chosen by Neil Lawton. Here's what Neil had to say about the piece: "I doubt that any member of the buying public can appreciate the amount of skill and craftsmanship that is involved in the production of pieces like these. You do need a depth of knowledge on 'how wood works' to produce works like these, and I believe Nick has shown this to a high degree! Stunning, simple looking pieces like these are actually very hard to achieve. You are a craftsman, Mr Simpson!"
Congratulations again to Nick and we will bring you another chosen piece next week. In the meantime, you can find out more about the piece by clicking here.
