In Your Eyes

This was a birthday present for my wife, Suzy. When I saw this piece of Metasequoia, the bark on the holes reminded me of eyes with eyeliner. Suzy and I went to the Junior Prom together in 1990. The theme song was Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes". The two sets of legs represent the two of us dancing. One is perfectly plumb -- Suzy is an exceptional dancer. The other isn't -- this poor form represents my inability to dance. They connect in the center of the piece, where four pipes emerge through the lower slab representing our family: me, Suzy, our son, Orion, and our daughter, GG -- who was only crawling when we made this piece.

Dimensions: 72" wide x 25" deep x 51.5" high
