Lobata

Lobata

Tom Arie Donch

2014, Mosaic

During the Community Built Association Conference in Davis, CA, community members, boot camp participants, and conference attendees helped in five community projects lead by community built association members, Tom Arie Donch, Donna Billick, and Caryl Yasko. Tom Arie Donch and Donna Billick lead community members in creating four benches made of concrete, mosaic, and ferrous cement. Lobata is an order of Ctenophora in the class Tentaculata with smaller tentacles than other ctenophores, and distinctive flattened lobes extending outwards from their bodies. They are about 25 centimetres long. This specimen is the inspiration behind the Lobata bench built by Tom Arie Donch.
