Furniture & Functional Objects

It’s always kind of fun to make a piece of art that can actually be used. Tables, benches, umbrella stands, hat racks, pieces of hardware made from agricultural machinery, etc. I like the aspect of metamorphosis – taking a piece out of it’s original form and using it in a totally different, but still compatible context.
