Description

He’s incapable of stinting on the time required to hand-make beautiful, elegant objects which buyers cherish for a life time and bequeath to the next generation as heirlooms or collector’s items.
 
For a number of years he has been creating exquisite timber and metal furniture pieces and sculptures in a Workshop on the farm where he’s lived for 10 years with his family.
 
In his woodcraft and black smith shop he works creating and designing pieces that are unique and mostly a one-of design not just another craft shop but as a place and space that visitors can feel and smell the elements of steel, wood, fire & water, his workshop is  located in apple packing shed built in the early 1900s ,and his creations now being displayed in a purpose built gallery with materials sourced from the refurbishment of the Mount Barker apple cool-stores built in 1918 ,now known as Corkescrew Gallery and Workshop.
 
George says the 100 year old shed “is a perfect complement to the works I exhibit made from W. A. timbers – new and recycled".
 
George's passion for wood starting out  as a carpenter and joiner at the age of 16 and the metal working skills came from his father in law, now 91, a career blacksmith all of his working life.
 
There are plenty of stories such as these to hear and wonders to observe when you visit the Corkescrew Gallery. You’re welcome to spend time enjoying the artworks at your leisure, or alternatively, watch  as George transforms wood and metal into collectible and also functional pieces of furniture and art.

Karen Sibly

Karen started life as a fine jeweller, yet she always adorned her home and garden with the abundant sculptures she created from recycled materials.

She works mostly with timber and steel, carving and welding with “Darcy McDog”, the ever faithful cocker spaniel who is always on hand with creative input and constructive criticism.

Karen and Darcy immerse themselves in their artwork, which keeps them sane… well, almost.

Kerry Sibly

Kerry ‘Sibbo’ Sibly had supressed his artistic talents for most of his life, instead concentrating on a more ‘serious’ career path including engineering, architecture and IT, yet job satisfaction still eluded him… until now.

  • Open Days/times:BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
  • Represented Artists:Kerry Sibly
  • Galleries:Painting,Metal Work,Mixed Media,Upcyclng,Artist Studio

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

He is currently building his family home and studio, while dabbling with his art and graphic design passions.

Painting is simply his way of stirring up the days emotions, pouring them onto canvas and squishing them around with a brush. Kerry is a ‘blow-in’ to Cowaramup (from Melbourne), chasing the serene pipe dream of a simpler life, yet still cannot take a back seat. He painted nearly 50 fibreglass cows through town and continues to maintain them. This led him to a peculiar fondness of the bovine species and he tries to capture their individual personalities in his portraits.

Weathered timber and rusted steel is too often overlooked. I upcycle scrap into precious artworks. Building my own canvases from rusty old milking sheds, I then adorn them with portraits of the former inhabitants.

Nigel Lullfitz

I work in the steel fabrication industry and this strongly influences my sculpture practice.

Description

The works are influenced by the drama in the natural environment surrounding her Yallingup home. The colours of the sky, the sparkle of the light on the bush, the shapes, smells and textures of our incredible flora and fauna and the beach all impact her work. “I view my jewellery as highlighting the wearers’ character from within, the sparkle in their eyes or maybe that beautiful smile.”

Voytek creates all of his work by hand, one piece at a time. Quality, durability and artistic finishes are integral to each piece.

He is happy to discuss ideas with clients who seek special or unique designs.
