From the French, chatoyer, ‘to shimmer’, chatoyance is that glowing lustre which can be revealed when wood is viewed from differing angles. It’s the theme upon which Studio Woodworkers Australia (SWA) have based their latest group exhibition.
Founded in 2011, SWA is Australia’s peak accreditation association for professional woodworkers and wood artists and also has a culture of mentoring which is also reflected in the inclusion of work by emerging makers partnered with accredited members that will also be presented.
