Blowing the horn again

I borrowed this image from The Design Files, it's a shot of Mr Tarlo of Tarlo & Graham's contemporary art collection, well some of it - the man seems to have an appetite!
The reason this is here is because the wall mounted sculpture in the top right of the pic, is a piece of work by my beau, Sam Jinks.

He's a clever geezer, works bloody hard, and this is one of his most successful pieces. It's great to see where these works end up, how people live with such detailed sculptures in their homes. It's also good to see a mish-mash of different pieces all together; usually I view Sam's work either in his studio, or in monastically austere gallery spaces, and this scene here is so casual and everyday.
I likey!

That is wild! How tres exciting!!! WOW! Love that piece, it's a stand out (no pun intended). It's beautiful.

PS - I am SURE I saw someone wearing a pair of your uber cool treads the other day.. Am I right? Could it be true?
