Tongue Table

 "Tongue Table"

By Homer Carey 

Homer Carey is "The Prince of Slides" in the Northern California Multimedia Department where his responsibilities include producing computer-generated slides and other graphic art projects. He has a background in architecture, stained glass, photography, miniatures, and cardboard sculpture--a medium he has been working in for over 20 years. When he began working with cardboard in the late 1970s, it was an inexpensive and little-used medium. Its appeal is that the final product is lightweight, yet strong. Most of the work Mr Carey produces is based upon a cubical or cylindrical shape, which adds to the strength. His work has been engineer-tested and can hold over 1000 pounds.

"Tongue Table," named that because it abstractly resembles a tongue, is approximately 18" high, 24" wide and 28" long. It is in Mr Carey's preferred "natural" state (unpainted). Mr Carey says, "You have to be somewhat 'Zen' around cardboard furniture as it doesn't like moisture and can be easily dented."
