David created a compelling design awhile ago of a folded heart sculpture made of steel. I thought of a way to make this piece somewhat utilitarian by having him cut an inverted hole in the middle of the fold to support business cards or even a rock like the one shown below. I hope that he is able to generate more of these pieces in the future, because of their attractiveness and usefulness.

The Rock of the Week
My friends, David and Laura Wallis let me set up a booth next to their stand at the Enchanted Village Fair at the Stonebridge school in the Carneros region south of Napa. I arrived around 2PM as I set up next to them and a "dunking" machine, where students and family members threw softballs at a target which, when struck would release the seat which left the participant in a large tub of water.Kids loved this because even teachers found themselves targeted as they sat on the seat waiting for some "lucky" student to strike the panel which dropped the poor victim into the drink.The fair had an Arthurian theme which was reminiscent of the Knights of the Round Table, with wooden swords, dragons, wizards and fair maidens.The rocks I sold were a good fit, because of their timeless quality.
