|Lou Quallenberg's Signature Mesquite Bow Tie
Lou Quallenberg's Signature Bow Tie on the Lectern makes a symbolic cross shape and holds the large crack in place. We have several clients that request the Bow Tie even if it is not required structurally to hold their commissioned piece together. They like Lou's Bow Tie purely as a design element. The Bow Tie on the Mesquite Lectern was also sculpted to add dimension and catch the light . This required an extra thick, BIG Bow Tie in order to to have room to sculpt it.
