From the family of "creative kitemakers" of Downunder, this Australian designer has done it all. From small to big show kites, he has a full line of commercial and art kites which dazzle both the public when they purchase a kite for personal flying or whether they are entertained by the artful flight of one of his large inflatibles at a kite festival. Check out his web page in related links above.
This kite is one of his EO series, in ingenious collapsible cellular construction, folds flat to travel or store and "pops" up to fly. This one is referred to as the Qual facit Box #1 and is signed by the maker.
