Place Setting © 2002 Tom Ferguson   Still got it. ... back ... next

 Found this table leaf, half round, on the street. Let it sit around awhile, sorted through my drawing stack & gradually this idea arrived. The utensils are salvaged from daughter. The earth of course is the place-setting for our life feast... and that feast can be a festival of childlike play, joy. Found the mahogany(?) molding later, added it as a frame-lip, edge... the ends are painted red & green respectively, salve for the cut & violated opposite ends. The leftover piece became Gymninism.
