This work was exhibited by Finer Things gallery at SOFA Chicago 2001. Curator Patricia Kane saw it there and had the opportunity to discuss it with the artist and with Dave and Ruth Waterbury, Robyn Horn, and Glenn Adamson. Horn, who is one of the leading collectors of Lamar's work, and Adamson, who wrote about his work for "Wood Turning in North America Since 1930" encouraged Kane to give this object serious consideration for the Art Gallery's collection.
