MacKenzie Childs Cakewalk Visiting Bench
I am always interested in how an artist decides upon a name for a work. Some are obvious, others not so much. In this case, I believe the Cakewalk Visiting Bench looks a bit like a well-decorated pastry. Made from Birch, Poplar and Fir woods, there is so much going on with this bench, you almost don't know where to look first. The bench is hand-painted and makes use of a variety of materials, including glass beaded fringe, ribbons, wallpaper, several different fabrics and even some paper. At 64 inches long, it will comfortably seat two and the attached battery-operated candlestick light creates a cozy spot for enjoying a cup of tea with your visitor. $5,200.
