Ten Thousand Springs Pavilion – Peter Brockman and Tim Puro were selected to be a part of a team that assembled a hand carved scale model of a Chinese pavilion at the Headley Whitney Museum in Lexington Kentucky. The Ten Thousand Springs Pavilion is a Smithsonian traveling exhibition and a crew of local artisans are recruited to assemble the exhibit. The model took almost three days to assemble and it depends on a clever joinery system to hold the model together. See post on the departure of the exhibit: https://headleywhitneymuseum.wordpress.com/2012/10/05/farewell-to-the-ten-thousand-springs-pavilion/

This 1870’s ladies writing desk needed some repairs and a good cleaning to remove 100+ years of soot, dust, dirt and furniture polish. 20+ hours of cleaning revealed gold in the incised carving and a contrasting walnut and ebonized finish.
