Unique Design Passion Craftmanship
John designs and creates bespoke sculptures of unparallelled craftsmanship using iconic and rare Australian timbers such as Australian Red Cedar, Huon Pine, Bluegum and Jarrah. Combining this with stainless steel and Sydney sandstone, his pieces are both free standing or wall hung. He uses the three mediums to sculpt them into forms with a very high standard of finish.
"I am constantly inspired by the beautiful waterways or bush settings in our local area. Whether it be boats, sailing or marine life such as whales and fish, or leaves from native plants. I aim to give my pieces the wow factor so that from a distance it lures people towards the piece. Once they get closer they can study the craftsmanship detail that painstakingly goes into them often taking months to create construct the various components into the finished piece."
John's two passions in life are the bush and the ocean. His most recent works reflect this with a series of leaf themed sculptures, created from stainless steel and handcarved sandstone.
Contact Christine to arrange a mutually convenient time to visit John in his workshop, and see the materials in the raw. You can also visit the gallery and view a range of both free standing and wall hung pieces all under gallery lighting. Feel free to wander through the sculpture garden that backs onto Bouddi National Park. John has many ideas for outdoor sculptures and his garden is a constant work in progress.

Over the past ten years, Hood has attained and consolidated a role as a world leader for the production of racing and cruising sails. A result achieved mainly thanks to two fundamental factors: the superb quality of the sailcloths and the outstanding quality of the finish. Sails are made from Dacron® and Vektron® materials produced in the U.S.A. exclusively for Hood sailmakers around the world.
Particular attention is given to finishings when making and repairing sails: areas most subject to chafing are specially reinforced and all accessories are carefully selected or even produced to our own specifications.
Improving a sailboat's performance is becoming more and more important, even for those who mainly sail on weekends.
Proudly Australian - all our sails are designed and manufactured at our sail loft in Brookvale.

As a purpose built day charter catamaran the Seawind 1160 Resort has been developed with the owner in mind. Maximum passenger capacity per foot of waterline is the key to any day charter boat formula, offering maximum earning potential with minimal start up and running costs.
Not only does this day charter catamaran offer investors high earning potential it has also been developed to be an easily operated vessel for owner/operators who will run the day charter shorthanded to reduce running costs and escalate profits.
Your guests will love lazing on the comfortable forward lounges recessed into the front deck, complete with cushions, cocktail tables and a high cut self-tacking jib that gives the joy of sailing without the sails getting in the way.
This will be a popular spot for dolphin watching or just champagne sipping. Yet all guests remain safely enclosed with a flat floor to walk on.
A high-strength transom platform allows for a multitude of uses, from stowing a dinghy, kayaks, paddled boards, dive tanks, or even a swimming platform.
Alternatively attach a boom net and give your passengers a fun ride towing them behind.
A swim ladder that stows safely under a hatch makes for easy boarding while the optional hot and cold transom shower provides a fresh rinse from a refreshing swim.
The helm is centrally located to ensure the skipper can see his guests and communicate with them when needed, yet with all controls at his fingertips.
A clever feature however has the helm a full step higher than the remaining cockpit and forward cockpit meaning the skipper can see above most guests.
The vessel can be either left open for maximum ventilation or enclosed with totally transparent clears that prevent wind and rain entering the cockpit.
