Alida Walsh Functional Sculpture
Here's a funky and phenomenal piece of art that is functional as well! This is a table or cabinet base that was designed by Alida Walsh (1933-2006), a feminist artist, filmmaker, and Art Professor who died in Schenectady, New York after a lengthy and noteable career in sculpture, mixed media and film. The piece consists of fiberglass cast legs with a top that measures 13 1/2" wide, 22" across and it stands 20" high. Please note that I have added a separate black laquer tray to the top in order to show what it would look like as a table. Just know that the base could be used in any number of ways. It's a favorite conversation piece in my shop right now.
