Once again of Breakwater Studios has done a superb job of profiling this gifted artist. Another video well worth watching!
I have worked with Elizabeth for many years, most notably (and enjoyably) in producing our collaborative piece "Medusa" (Photographs here https://plus.google.com/+StevenKennard/posts/gGo6ttSLZHU ) and am a great admirer of this artist and her work.

Terrific job everyone. It is a beautiful profile video, that's for sure. It is featured on the Collectors of Wood Art of America site as well as the American Association of Woodturners site.
It was tweeted by and was on some pretty major sites apart from the specialist ones mentioned above.

My own profile is being released on May 5th, so watch this space!
The Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council has written about this great series: (from http://www.nsdcc.ns.ca/news-opportunities/lifes-work-six-conversations-makers)
“Life’s twists, challenges, surprises, and possibilities have been captured by filmmaker Ben Proudfoot in a new series of short documentary videos called Life’s Work: Six Conversations with Makers. The trailer forLife’s Work, containing clips from all six videos, is being released today.
Life’s Work introduces viewers to six of Nova Scotia’s master craftspeople. Through the videos we get to visit them in their studios, and learn a little about their lives and what inspires their creativity. “The satisfaction that you get from actually making something with your own hands can’t be described,” says woodturner Steven Kennard, “The joy and the delight!”
Stone, featuring stone carver Heather Lawson was released last week. Turns, featuring Steven Kennard will be released on Vimeo on May 5, followed by Mother Earth (May 19), Fibre & Wood (June 2), Lady Bug(June 16), and Rust (June 30).
Directed by Ben Proudfoot of Breakwater Studios International Ltd., Life’s Work is a collaboration between Craft Alliance Atlantic Association and the Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council. Funding for the project was provided by ACOA Nova Scotia and Film and Creative Industries Nova Scotia who recognized and supported the opportunity to celebrate and promote our vibrant culture, our talented craftspeople, and our beautiful province to a global audience.
“There’s something that turns me on about the fact that, at the end of the day here’s something that I think is very cool that didn’t exist in the morning. It wasn’t there last week. It didn’t exist last year. And here it is,” says sculptor Gordon Kennedy, “If you want to do things, do it. This isn’t the dress rehearsal. What matters is life. Life matters. Live it.””
How do you fancy opening your back door to this one morning? We did it several mornings. And Joni went over the top first! At least our door opens inward or we might have had problems getting out as many people did.
Surely there should be a #snowsunday or something of that nature? Instead of #depthoffieldSunday why not a #depthofsnowSunday ?
The release of the Vimeo profile video about me ( https://vimeo.com/126545288 ) has prompted requests to show some of the photography of the actual lost orchard. Here is my posting and an image I took in the fog, of one of the wonderful old trees in that beautiful orchard. I have taken others and will try to post more soon.
Thanks a lot to Jon Binzen for the lovely writeup!
This is the next in the series of Conversations with Makers, featuring my work, this time.
Thanks to the Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council, to the Crafts Alliance and to Breakwater Studios for making this possible and doing such a great job.
I hope you enjoy this glimpse into my world.
I knew you would like it. I agree that they did a beautiful job. The three others so far released in the series (Stone, about a woman stonemason, Heather Lawson and Mother Earth, about a clay sculptor, Louise Pentz) are also beautiful, though they haven't had a fraction of the plays this one has.
The first in a series of 6 videos to be released bi-monthly on the theme of conversations with Nova Scotian makers. This one is a glimpse into the life of master stone carver, Heather Lawson. Beautifully produced by of Breakwater Studios.
My film it's to be aired on the 5th of May.
I will of course post a link here on G+
In a previous posting, where we talked about a very cold and snowy walk with Joni, our friend Ursula asked to see a photograph of how she looked at the end of her walk. We were out for 2 hours and the wind was blowing the snow swirling around the fields. Joni never seemed to mind as long as we kept throwing her toy.
So here she is, waiting for you to throw her a blue ball! You can bring Mira along with you, though she might find it a bit cold!
