Making up an ommission: Featuring Ross Annels. I had photos of one of his chairs on my backburner, but lost or forgot about them.

For an Aussie he is very poetic as you can see from this Gnutheru Chair.

Gnutheru, a Gubbi Gubbi word for shadow or ghost, speaks to the loss of the rich indigenous understanding of place that occurred with the colonial imposition of our rationalist world view, and expresses hope that by drawing inspiration from the shadowy remnants of knowledge we can rebuild an enlivened relationship to place.
Gnutheru is built in steam bent, laminated and handshaped silky oak, with embroidered and embossed macrosuede upholstery. The embossed text is Gubbi Gubbi language as recorded by colonial europeans.
