200 YEAR OLD PRESS ARRIVES
Past student Franka Marussia donated an old and wonderful French oak press to the studio. It's delivery turned into a 10 hour adventure across Sydney that culminated in a 3 hour marathon just to get it up the stairs.
Artist Roger Akinen volunteered his truck for the job and we got it to the bottom of the stairs at 9:30 in the evening. Unfortunately Roger and his friend Graeme had an appointment elsewhere and couldn't stay. Pablo and I were discovering the difficulty of getting up the first step when Liliana, a long time model and friend of the studio passed by and offered to help. The 3 of us then spent 3 hours getting it to the top of the stairs. I still have bruises from the job. The press now is set up in the studio and looks quite beautiful. We look forward to using it as soon as we get the bed arranged for etching.
Thank you Franka.
