Last week I brought my son Jonas and a Jete table up to Montpelier. The Guild of Vermont Furniture Makers was invited to the statehouse to put together a show of our work for the late summer and foliage season. Here are a couple views.
This is in the “Card Room” on the way to the cafeteria.
Besides setting up the room, which several Guild members helped with along with the curators, we all had time to see the statehouse. I had never been inside before, only out on the lawn, usually in the rain, with a sign, or enjoying music. Jonas and I both felt welcomed and at home in “the people’s house,” as they call it. I’m not sure what impressed him most. Paintings of the Civil War, the painted glass skylights in the same room, and the fantastic architectural carving all caught his attention. Probably most anticipated was the gold dome. It did not disappoint.
