Collie's Wooden Inlay Crafts
Collie Burt, a 76-year-old master craftsman whose talent goes largely hidden in a small garage in Featherston. You see Collie 1) appreciates good timber 2) hates seeing it go to waste and 3) uses his craft to connect people with quality wood. His workshop is scattered with coffee tables, wall art, screens and side tables each adorned with flowers, ovals and concentric shapes. Nothing in the workshop has a defined pricetag ' since Collie recognises himself how he can't put a true value on anything as everything is a 'labour of love'. Furniture that would have taken hours of handcrafting the intricate panels, go for half of what they should really cost.
