  • Gerry Thomas Handcrafted Rocker
    • rocking chair sentinel by the lakeArtist’s description: Both pieces are made from maple and walnut but contain elements of rosewood and ebony. Elizabeth, my wife, suggested that the ebony lines in the arms of the chair would appear to gently embrace whoever might be the chair’s occupant. I really liked that image, as well as regarding the swans as representatives of yin and yang (another suggestion of Elizabeth’s). It goes hand in hand with the juxtaposition of the light and dark woods and with the idea of soul mates. 
  • Gerry Thomas Handcrafted Wine Tablewine table sentinel by the lake

Artist’s description: The pie crust table has several unique features. The top can be positioned to be either flat or vertical. When placed in the flat position the top will rotate much as a Lazy Susan, or it can be held in a stationary position by a key. As a sidelight, the key was fashioned to match the design of the chair rockers. The design of the table is an old one dating to the early 1700’s when drinking exotic teas became the rage in Europe. However, I thought it would be more fun to utilize the table for serving wine.
