Daisuke presented us with his two latest projects, an easy chair of Afromosia he built over the summer, and a coffee table of Sycamore and Maple which he just completed during this first semester. He said that, for him, designing and building a piece furniture is like composing a piece of music. The harmonies between materials and the melodies that come from the maker being connected to the process and finding his own voice in the work.

We apologize for the late Christmas post, the weeks leading up to the open house were busy, but everyone stayed in good health and spirits.
Santa asked the Inside Passage students to be helper elves this Christmas. He sent them special elf socks to wear as their honorary elf uniforms.
The annual Christmas party at Inside Passage always includes a Secret Santa tradition where we each make a gift to exchange with each other. All of the gifts were amazing, we all had fun making them and the gift opening was filled with lots of smiles and laughs.
A big thank you to Yvonne and Robert for the party, and the gumboot staff for taking good care of us.
