This is our piece, entitled ‘Bridges’, currently in the ‘State of Craft’ show described below. It is a collaborative piece between myself, my two sons, Sam and Will, and was partially inspired by my grandfather’s 50 years work as a riveter, building bridges for the Bethlehem Steel company …

The Bennington Museum, in conjunction with the Vermont Crafts Council has launched an impressive show surveying 50 years of craft in Vermont. 85 artists and 125 objects impressively curated by Anne Majusiak and Jamie Franklin. This is one of the nicest professional displays of fine crafts I have seen in my 30 + years in the field … Worth a trip if you’re in the area, or a day trip if you’re not … There are two posts on my dorset custom furniture blog with more and larger photos and comments …

one here and one here

just curious, are you sand blasting, pressure washing, or burning the wood in the 4th pic?

Looks REALLY cool. Love the style of the table! nicely done

I liked the greenish aged look on the metal. An appropriately named piece of art with great craftsmanship.
