My medium of choice has long since been steel. Steel creations are permanent and the options in their design are limitless. After years of creating wall and free-standing sculptures I recently decided to focus my creative efforts on functional sculptures in the form of contemporary end tables.

One of the most difficult parts of the wedding planning for many couples is the seating at the reception. Not only do you have to figure out how to arrange all of your guests, there is also the matter of the head table to be decided. Here are some of the more popular options for head tables, along with the pros and cons of each.
Instead of one of these tables, you could use a rectangular or square table for the same purpose. This will give you more table space, but will also extend some sharp points into the room, and will reduce the amount of remaining space in the room.
A table of this variety is a great to place in areas where you have limited room or where people will be walking, such as hallways or main rooms. Because of their shape, they create the illusion that they extend from the wall, forming a natural smooth curve. This makes them attractive to the eye and can add a flow of vision and movement to a room.
Probably the best place to put a small table is an entryway or foyer. Half moon tables in these locations provide the maximum amount of maneuverability while still providing significant space to put items on.
