Hollow vessels are technically difficult to craft with fine walls and narrow openings. Hand burnished finishes, each piece is signed, dated and numbered by the artist. Mikkris House produces pieces throughout the year showcasing the very best of Tasmania's native trees and magnificent timbers from around the world.
Our new workshop and gallery is in the historic Geeveston Town Hall located at 15 Church St. Geeveston. Feel free to call in and watch Ross at the lathe Thurs-Sun afternoons. We look forward to seeing you.
