The Art of Fine Furniture

The Queen of Slipstream by Mark Laub

This beautiful wood piece is created to intrigue the eye and then to explore deeper.  The flower top spins upward to reveal the mosaic inside.

Smaller drawers come out the side and off the top.

Open the top for more hidden beauty

And looking closer at the bottom, I find another treasure.

Just a couple more days in Winona, Minnesota at the History Center then the show goes to Rochester, Minnesota.  Hope you take a look. 

Here's the write up from the Winona County Historical Society.  Click the link below to learn more about the artists and the Art of Fine Furniture.  The Art of Fine Furniture is free and open to the public.
