children's "toybox", a three dimensional sculptural piece
for fun: playful,
decorative and happy.
See what can be made from dusty old discarded timber
recycled and re-assembled in a creative way!

Hi Ernie, Congratulations. I love this piece
and can see the evolution of your art that got you there. Cheers, -- Janet

Congratulations Ernie, very beautiful and at the same time
thoughtful. When you started on the reliefs, it was a new departure, and
how logical to go into real three dimensions. Greetings, - Karl M. artist,
Congratulations Ernie! Fantastic
news! You are truly a multi-faceted artist. I hope that we will get
to see some of your sculptural pieces in Mosman Art Society shows.
Hopefully will have a chance to get out to the Easter Show and see your current
prize-winning entry in person. Take care. Cheers, --
Anne-Nicole, artist Sydney.
Hi there Ernie, Congratulations! what a wonderful boost to
an artist's morale. I went onto your site and had a look at the 'Magical
Toybox'... It does look as tho' it might hold some wonderful magical
surprise, creating a strong compulsion to take a peek inside... Cheers

hi ernie - congratulations!! a beautiful piece!! i haven't seen any
of your wood constructions in the round before - very handsome photo too -
wondering what finish you used - will it stand up outdoors, or mainly intended
for indoor use? i used to make painted wood-products (tempered masonite)
sculpture back in the early 60s - indoor use only - they combined 3-d with 2-d
spatial effects, so were hybrids -ciao -- ted k, new york artist, USA
Hi Ernie, I was able to go on-line and view your
sculpture. It looks very tasteful and "neat", pleasant to the eye, and
makes the statement about possibilities out of what seems so simple. I
think it would be attractive to people of all ages. Children would be able
to run their fingers over the surface, as would blind people as well. Good
work, and again, congratulations on your 2nd prize at the show. Shalom --

good. -- David W. Sydney.
Congratulations - a great achievement. xxxxx --

Ernie, Your sculptures are wonderful -- very innovative and
fresh. Being a woodworker myself, I admire the intricacy of the "collage"
of interwoven pieces of wood and have an idea of the careful planning, measuring
and finishing that is involved. Congratulations on your Prize! --
