Interactive sculpture, a teacher at the local elementary school had contacted me about coming up with a project that the kids could interact with at the arts day they have. After giving it some thought I started searching out some good bends and shapes thinking about a mortise and tenon set up that could be put together and pulled apart so that each group of kids could create there own unique sculpture, and pull it apart. They idea worked better than I could of imagined I noticed the kids working together figuring out how to place and balance the pieces I could see the sparks flying.

Always great to involve youngsters in the art of wood. I’m sure they had fun learning how to design neat structures.

Outstanding! Anything that can be creative and interactive with people, especially the younger generation, is a winner!
