  • About Ross Annels

    Ross is a studio furniture maker, branching out through wood art to larger multi-media sculptural pieces. He co-directs the Cooroora Institute: sharing the song of the earth through creative practice, and bringing together artists, musicians and intellectuals interested in the artistry of place. His work investigates the partnerships that become possible in the making with natural materials and ways to express the many more-than-human creative practices in the world. Birdsong becomes furniture, wood grain becomes block prints, leaves become copper sculptures; the politics of humanity rewoven into the ecology of the earth.
