The exhibition was at the public gallery in Castle Douglas and ran until the 21st of July, opening between 10.30 am and 4 pm, on display was a mixture of wood turning, felt, textiles, furniture and photography.

Some of the objects are challenging to display well, the natural edge bowls are always an issue as I make them with curved bases (I don't like them with flat bottoms) so putting them flat on a surface really does not work so well. Having tried wooden bases of various types and still not being happy with the way it looked I thought of clear acrylic tube in short lengths so I set off looking for this on the Internet....plenty of tube suppliers but when it came to cutting it in short lengths, thats a different story - my experiences of cutting acrylics has not been happy so I really wanted to get it ready cut.

The difference in the display of the finished bowls is pretty startling, a mirror tile was placed under the whole thing to bounce light back up onto the under side of the bowl and the bowls really do stand out now.
