Miguel Mahlich of Tusk Metalworks talks about his art installation of harvest tables. The tables are each eight feet long with benches, creating a 50-foot picnic table for future harvest dinners at Sprout and where Growers & Makers Marketplace shoppers can sit, relax, and watch cooking demonstrations while enjoying lunch, beverages, and entertainment. The harvest table displays Mahlich’s creativity and skill using a combination of metal and woodworking.
The Harvest Tables & Benches, custom made for Sprout, are all about having a great place to sit and converse with others over a freshly cooked meal. With both red oak and white oak being used on the tables and benches, plus the addition of metal frameworks, these tables show uniqueness in their grain, colors, and different natural mediums. Such visual differences beautifully bring this project together, much like Sprout's goal to bring people of different cultures and places together.
