Home

So here is my table in its new home. It is bought and paid for but I always consider my art stuff mine, lent out for other's to enjoy, much like a diamond that you can never own but only become a part of its history.  It was a fun challenge and interesting project but I don't think I will go into the table business.  It was just one of those accidents in life where the customer wanted a five foot table and I just happened to have a five foot steel ring.  Fortuitous for both of us!
   I like the fluted steel columns as legs and would like to see what a smaller table might look like supported by a single column.  So, I will be thinking about that.
   A lot of what I do is just accidental, serendipitous, finding things I wasn't looking for and then making something of them that I hadn't thought about.  I meet people that way too, an accidental encounter and then something clicks and something happens.  Open to ideas and chance encounters.  "Why can't we all just get along?"  I think about Rodney King!  My mind will do that.  Jump from the solidness of steel to the philosophical and poetic in a heartbeat.

Hi Jerry,
This table looks really very good.
Sometimes it is fun to do something different after a long time, and it also gives one a break from the doing the things we usually do.

I have to admit, the table looks gorgeous even out of doors!

You just never know where all those connects may lead. Way to go on the table installation! I'm sure they will enjoy it for many years to come.
