Windbreak started coming to Farmer’s Market with me during the summer of 2007. One of my favorite people (we’ll call him Don) came to visit it every week for quite a few weeks straight.
Towards the middle of the summer, Don’s wife (let’s call her Annette)decided to give Windbreak to Don for Christmas. At that point Windbreak didn’t have a base, so casually, during one of the weekly visits, I asked Don for advice on building the perfect base.
Turns out Don had definite opinions about that. Which I followed.
Well, this went on for the rest of the summer. Annette and I managed to keep a straight face until the very end.
The best/worst part was having to tell Don that Windbreak had been sold. Ouch!
Needless to say, Don was surprised on Christmas, and Annette and I should have gotten some kind of award for acting!
Windbreak measures 15″ wide and approximately 10″ tall. Hand-carved and slumped recycled glass 3/8″ thick. Mounted in a solid walnut base with LED lights.
