The kids craft table will be getting a unique design inspired by Seattle, thanks to an award-winning artist.
The art, titled “Crazy,” is a two-legged table made from a series of floating wooden blocks and covered in colorful, geometric patterns.
The designs, created by artist Rachael Clements, will be on display in the craft table for one year from September 2019 to May 2020 at the Art and Crafts Museum in Seattle, WA.
The sculpture will be installed on the wall of the table by artist Heather Loy.
The design was inspired by a recent trip to the United Kingdom to see a piece of furniture called a “Climbable Table.”
It is made from two-dimensional wood and has a removable top that can be moved from one side to the other, which allows it to be used as a stand.
Loy said the design inspired her to create a “crazy” piece of art that would appeal to children.
“I thought about how this would appeal so much to children and their imaginations, and it is really cool to see something so whimsical in real life,” she said.
Clements’ art is an expression of the human body and is meant to inspire, educate and inspire.
She is a member of the Seattle-area chapter of the International Society for Contemporary Art (ISCA), which promotes contemporary art in the Pacific Northwest.
The table, which was unveiled at the annual SABAC Design Award in Seattle on Monday, will receive a Design Award from ISCA this fall.
The group will be able to donate the art to schools and libraries.
“We are really excited about the opportunity to support the work of a local artist and to be able put this amazing piece of artwork on display to showcase to the community,” said ISCA President and CEO Jennifer Rizzo.
“It will bring a sense of wonder and delight to those who have an interest in this new form of art.”
Clements, whose other work includes a giant spider sculpture at the American Museum of Natural History, said she hopes her piece will inspire young people to learn more about the world and how it works.
“The art is about a little girl who is a little bit different than the average kid,” she explained.
“She is very intelligent, and I hope to give her a little more of a challenge than most people.
It is not just a table, but an idea of how she can be creative.”
