If my wood idea for the table doesn't work I think I will switch to metal after seeing what is out there online. It can be really beautiful.
Espicially with forging steel like these two artist.
I wish I could cut glass like this top table. Thats gorgeous
He works out of California now.
The website keep shutting out when I tried to click around, and he had everything protected so I couldn't find out much more.
These are also tree/table/sculpture design artist of course!
This is just awesome first off
Okay well this blog hates me the photo posted above my text but still the Chesire is awesome!
The tree gate isn't for sale but he will make similar things.
I think that is gorgeous! Its forged steel!! <3
The table is also forged steel and glass for the table top.
Oh soooo freaking awesome!!

"Art has been a spritual journey for me. It is my inward vehicle of outward expression. Forget about what the critics say of art. If ever you see an art work that inspires you or uplifts your heart, then purchase it as an investment in your soul." He seems to be good, but to into the money even for my taste!
But his work is beautiful!!!

This is my furniture designer.
Beaumont was born in 1960 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and he studied art at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver. After graduating in 1985, Beaumont founded Straight Line Designs Inc. http://www.straightlinedesigns.com/index.php
He has also done Installations and other object such as a pet camper, bird house, and ipod doc. Most of his pieces are highly playful and inventive. They have been compared to art by Dr Seuss and Walt Disney. Here are some of my favorites by Judson Beaumont:
"Little Black Dresser"
That last picture is my absolute favorite! The shadows from the legs are so beautiful and enchanting.

Native wood-he found it on the side of the road, stainless steel, and glass for the table top.
He makes a lot of cool things. He has a duck lamp, piano shelf, as pictured. However, his other things are amazing too.
I would love to have this in my office!!
I am considering making a table like this if possible...
Thats his site, I linked you to his sculpture page.
He is from New York.
He wants people to think about their mortality.
However, he was born in Chile and raised in London, but as I mentioned he is working out of New York now.
His work has been shown all over the world and he also does public art pieces.
He was born in 1977.
His latest project is that he is working on an installation piece for New York as a public art piece.
His work is amazing.

So I thought this was pretty awesome. It's a snowboard on some mountains!
Which I was thinking of doing something like this for my final in metal though.
But then I was thinking I wonder if there's tables like that out there..I want to know!!
So then I looked and sure enough there is!
I can't figure out the artist..
But here is the website.
They just use different types of wood and finishes.
I would love ideas and input on if i should do something like this - snowboarding not skating or surfing which is also on the site.
But I would prefer not to use wood..

This is a trailer for a documentary about these doll scenes this women created. They mention her name throughout the trailer.
Frances Glessner Lee was a Chief Medical Examiner. She was the one who suggested having actual medical professionals instead of just coroners in the justice system.
In the 1940's and 1950's she made working dioramas of 40-50 crime scenes called the "Nushell Studies of Unexplained Death". They had working lights, doors, and windows. They are extremely impressive. The detail in blood splatter and position of weapons and furniture is almost exactly like the scene itself. Also the fact the a women was a major person in the medical field in that era makes this even more impressive. The dioramas were used to help students study crime scene to develop their skills in solving crimes.
I'd really like to try this one day. It seems like a really interesting study in art and crime, and I'm interested in both.
