Sponsored by John and Rika Mouw and built by Dave and Dan Gerard of Gerard Houseworks, this is the piece of sittable art at which the writers of Storyknife will dine each evening.
See the slideshow on Dave and Dan’s Facebook page for a step-by-step of how they built this beautiful objet d’art. They and Rika and John have given Storyknife its first heirloom.
But the Homer community as a whole has turned out in force to support Storyknife, from the Kachemak Bay Quilters making quilts for the cabins, Homer potters contributing a place setting for each cabin, Rita Jo Shoultz’ exquisite landscaping, Susanne Singer Alvarez’ stunning pavers, Cari Thurman of Two Sisters advising Erin on everything from refrigerators to food processors to make cooking for the writers the best possible culinary experience for them and for our chef, Maura Brenin. Thank you all so much.
