Winged Lectern

The Winged Lectern is the best piece I have made.

The Amperstand and it's winged cousins can be used as lecterns but they are a little low for really comfortable use. This lectern is both taller and more tilted with a stop to hold the book or folder securely in place. The front of the piece (facing the audience) is more sculpted than prior pieces - I think there is a subtle hint of and eagle in the shaping.

I gave this the Winged Lectern to Fort Worden and Centrum to an inspiration to the new partnerships and the need to rise to the challenge of creating a new gathering place for creative souls of all flavours.

That is truly a beautiful piece. Thank you for sharing your images. I only wish I didn't live on the other side of the country, otherwise I would love to attend classes.
