“Feast!” is a collaborative installation of uniquely designed and finely made pieces of functional artwork for the table, set against the exquisite backdrop of hand-crafted furniture. A group of West Michigan artists, aptly naming themselves “7 Hungry Artists”, planned this project over a few great dinners together. Their inspiration and execution is now a “feast” for everyone’s eyes! When you view the sophisticated, Danish inspired, walnut table and seating crafted by Matt Maher, David Tuck, and Garett Miles, hand-thrown pottery by Maggie Bandstra, blown furnace glass tumblers and vase by John Riepma, sterling and stone silverware by Julie Sanford, and textiles by Linda Culver, you will want these pieces for your very own intimate dinner with friends. Bon Appetit!
