For those of you who were curious to see what I look like, sound like (I had a brutal sinus infection that week, but this is close), and what I do/where I do it - until we move into the new house, and of course shop space - the commercial is now airing, in Canada. You can see it here first, at AUX.tv, but I'm sure it'll pop up if you keep your eye out.
I would like to say a couple little things first, however:
There is a knife picture that I believe is Marko's handle work, and not mine. It is a piece that I tuned up and sold, and they happened to grab it from my site. I tried to get them to change the picture, but things were already too far along, so it is there forever.
Also, they asked me a few questions about my work with Jamie Oliver, and again, I tried to get them to downplay it, but they ultimately call the shots.
With all of this being said, they were terrific to work with, and I think they did a fantastic job with the commercial, capturing what I'm all about, and showing how I do it. It was a fantastic experience, and one I would do over again.
A huge thanks to Camber Media, and Ketel One Vodka. I'm truly honoured to have been contacted and chosen to be a part of a beautiful commercial series that is bringing the spotlight back to handmade goods and the beauty behind any craft.
Here it is. I hope you all like it:
