In the grand tradition of invention and groundbreaking ideas, Kent has joined forces with his sisters to create an artistic Christmas scene for the Southern Utah Jubilee of Trees. The trees are auctioned off and proceeds go to the regional NICU. Kent's part consisted of a fireplace and a table with chairs. The theme of the set comes from the wonderful children's book by Dr. Seuss, entitled "How The Grinch Stole Christmas". Kent's sisters, Kay Borrowman, TeRia Glauser and Kathy Van Gilder, call the piece "A Whacky Whimsical Christmas", because the Grinch is one of their favorite childhood Christmas characters and the "Who's down in Whoville" offered them a unique opportunity to decorate with colors not traditionally associated with the holiday season.

In the first photo, you can see some of the colors
they used on the tops that were included as gifts under the tree. Light blues, pinks, whites and greens... There's some beautiful use of pastels in this scene. In the second pic, you see a shot of the full set. You can see the off center slants to the chairs and table. Exactly the kind of furniture you'd expect to find in a Who home. Kent also built the fireplace where we can see a familiar figure... coming out? or going up?

It's a very intricate piece and one we're extremely proud to say we had a part in. In the final pic, you can see some of the entertainment that was provided to the spectators as they walked through the forest of Christmas trees. This choir of young children is from a local elementary school called Sunset Elementary.
