This church lectern was inspired by quilted wall-hangings that were made by members of the Unitarian congregation that hang in our sanctuary with beautiful Madrona trees native here on Whidbey Island. The graceful lines of the red Padauk sweeping upward are reminiscent of the red bark of Madrona trees.
The curly maple in the body of the podium matches other woodwork in the building. Shelves and a drawer complete the piece from the back.
