Laurie is not only a very talented and creative sculptor but also a lovely person who made us feel very welcome. He also makes space in the indoor gallery for the works of other artists.

Sometimes Laurie is refered to be slightly eccentric. This would be true. There is a gallery for display of various local artists in addition to Laurie's work. Very well priced as they do not place Melbourne gallery prices on their pieces. Well worth a visit
