Thought the forum might like to see a few pix from Yandles spring show. There was one stand that really caught my eye, run by a young lady called Fiona Kingdon. These pics are all scrollwork, displayed on a black background, so everything that is black in these pics has been cut out. Her work is outstanding, and completely original, IMHO

I thought this was superb, especially the use of the figuring in the wood to represent ripples.

And how about this one? If you look carefully you can see that the spider's web is cut in an outward radiating spiral. Talk about attention to detail.

And the moggy - again all the black bits are cut out!

In this one, she has taking the scrolling into the frame. Very clever.

Again, really inspired use of the figuring in the wood..

And finally, how about this for simplicity?

If you visit her website (www.fionakingdon.co.uk) you can see more of her work. Just brilliant.

Hi Simon -- Like you, I spent a long time looking at this work and the amount of detail that she went into. There was a lot of interest while I was there so I hope she has had some good feedback from the show. Julian

I too went to this show on the Friday found it a bit too packed for me but as you say this work was outstanding. I just wish I had the insight to use the grain as she does _I´m a dead jealous woodworker. Normally I go on the Saurday and will do so in the future. I´d like to know who they pray to o get such constsant good weather Great show as always. Ged Meager
