A pair of interconnected drawers exploring ideas of negotiation and compromise through furniture, which were exhibited as part of Material Matters: Selected Works by Allied Craftsmen and By the Hand: A National Juried Exhibition of Traditional and Innovative Craft.
Closing the open drawer of one table, opens the drawer of the other. The hydraulic link between the two drawers leaves no way for both to be closed at the same time. If one imagines these table flanking a bed, there is a requirement for negotiation between the occupants in order to share access to the drawers. This piece also explores notions of privacy and the give and take between people and their possessions. You can't hide everything within these two tables. A choice must be made as to what is on display at a given moment.
