Artistic Inspiration

In the town  near where I lived in Colorado, they had to move the cemetery. When they did, a number of local artists recreated some old wooden tombstones to create tabletops. That was the memory that sprung to mind when I came across the piece of wood that forms the tabletop of this piece. Its bottom edge is straight while the top curves and is shaped like a gothic arch. It reminded me of a tombstone. It was in that moment, I decided to create my own artisan version of a tombstone table.
