遊歷

Brisbane

現今世界的工藝家因網絡連結起來。在IG看過無數的工藝家/匠人,卻忘不了他獨創的雕刻工具和技法,他是一位想法與技藝合一的大師,原來他的studio就在Brisbane市中心附近,所以把握機會叩門拜會。開始時顯然有點唐突,表明來意後他滔滔不絕地分享自己的工藝歷程,怎樣從engineer蛻變成木雕工藝家。說到那Vintage味十足的座地夾具,他保留並利用古董Dental Chair的油壓腳踏升降,把上半部改裝成可多軸轉向的金屬板,並以螺絲收緊木頭的底部,讓又大又重的木頭也能輕鬆而穩固地轉向,方便進行多向雕刻。他的作品主要是大木碗,令我們敬佩的是大部分作品是手雕而非車床成形,客群主要是來自美國的收藏家。他又隨隨把那些有趣的自創工具拿出來,逐一解構著當時的意念。我們亦有幸能夠走進他與愛人那彷如博物館的大宅,長2米多的大木桌,手雕3mm厚Huon Pine掛燈,整套黑色廚具cabinet等,全都出自他的手筆(應該還有更多⋯),以及不少外地購入的工藝珍藏,而且studio就在隔壁,那不就是dream life嗎😭?他的分享還有很多,也談及教學方面的點滴,我們也分享了一些木雕製作及在這邊的教學模式等,對他來說教學是非常重要的收入來源,我們也相當認同,或許這是現代工匠不可或缺的生存之道吧!

感謝Robert贈予Red Cedar 及 Tasmania 之寶 Huon Pine,以及他與我們一席話的時光。

Visiting Robert in his studio is definitely the highlight of our time in Brisbane. We enjoyed so much listening to his sharing on how he decided to follow his heart to become a woodcarver 30years ago. We are still in awe by the carving tools which he designed with his knowledge in professional engineering. His works are simply art, we feel lucky to see and touch them in real life.

Thank you Robert for sparing your time with us. The wood pieces you gave us are more than precious! Hope we will meet again!
