'Moondance' Display Cabinet

Elegant and contemporary, this superb piece by Joshua Norris took second place in the Pine Furniture section at the National Woodskills Festival held at Kawerau in 2009.

The competition is renowned as a prestigious test of skill and attracts many leading artists in the field. UCOL Fine Furniture students are regular attendees at the Festival, and as a student designer, Joshua was pitting his talents against many older and more experienced furniture makers.

Designed as a graceful keeper of keepsakes, the inspiration for this cabinet came from an item glimpsed in a book on bespoke furniture. Shaped from solid pine and plywood, blonded and lacquered, Joshua notes how much his designer-maker skills have developed under the School's tutelage:

"If you compare my original drawings and the final piece, they're strikingly similar"
