I always use this work by Rauschenberg as an example of how to think like an artist, when people ask me about art. Then I often talk about the piece I wish I could make happen; which is for Christo to wrap the Mona Lisa. Ideally, in time, it would create the ultimate artistic conundrum…. as the ‘wrapped Christo/Mona Lisa,’ would equal the fame of the Mona Lisa, but if it is ever to become unwrapped then that piece is destroyed. Either way the two pieces of art would struggle with the ultimate problem that in the wrapping one piece is hidden and in the unveiling another is destroyed but the clincher is that, so long as it happens, the Idea will survive of both pieces (wrapped and unwrapped Mona Lisa, by Christo!)

I had the pleasure of collaborating with Bradley Denton during the summer, designing and building a set of reclaimed White Oak tables for a gorgeous boathouse on Lake Simcoe.
The coffee table is quite big but works well in the large, open space. The side tables are a simple frame design, topped with marble.
