Inspirational man of vision!

I have recently come across an article in Links Magazine written by Carla Caruso, which provides a profile of a very inspirational man, Duncan Meerding.

Duncan is legally blind but has not let that hold him back from reaching big and wonderful things! Duncan has become a crafstma, using his touch and hearing to create amazing pieces of furniture. His pieces are inspired by curved lines and surfaces that are based on the wonderful shapes and appearances of nature! The Syney Morning Herald wrote in an article on Duncan, that "The 23-year-old describes his design as a form of artistic expression to explain how he sees the world now: minimalist objects with flowing lines".

Since beginning to lose his vision at the age of 18 due to the degenerative eye condition, Leber's hereditary optic, Duncan has moved beyond the challenges of what were the simplest things in life, to be able to inspire others through amazing and unique furniture designs.

I would highly suggest that you check out the article on him from either Links Magazine of the Sydney Morning Herald, I think that this wonderful story should really tell people that anything is possible if you put your mind to it!

Have a beautiful day,
