In a large workshop in the Perth area, Dunn works on his beautiful custom designed furniture as well as his artistic wood sculptures and turnings. Clients may come with a specific design in mind, or sometimes just an idea and the concept is realized using Dunn's skills which draw upon his twenty-six years of professional woodworking experience. Drawn to the subtle beauty in a variety of wood grains, Dunn has learned to emphasize this to advantage in his furniture. Meticulously finished and highly figured birds-eye or curly maple are often used.

Rocking chairs are a specialty. "I designed these chairs over a period of years. My goal was to build a rocking chair that could be used comfortably for a long period of time. The final successful ergonomic form evolved as I learned through observation and experimentation. I have combined this comfort with a design that shows the wood to its best advantage. The sturdy construction and clean, strong look result in a beautiful heritage rocking chair that will last for generations."

Turned bowls and hand-carved forms are other aspects of Dunn's work which allow him to explore the organic nature of wood. Burls, stumps and highly figured wood are the raw materials used to create these pieces, which are both decorative and functional.

  Choleena DiTullio
Paper Mosaics


Choleena has developed a totally new and unique process where she uses various papers (many hand made using natural plant fibers, dyes and leaves) and acrylic gloss to create the illusion and vibrancy of ceramic tile mosaic. The artwork is light, simple to hang or transport and easy to keep clean with a damp cloth. Photos do not do her work justice; in person, you'll see that the surface is high-gloss with a rich texture. Her themes run the gamut from nature-inspired to gears and zeppelins of the Steampunk movement.
