Art and Tomatoes

Artist-wife and I have been having discussions about sculpture as fine art and sculpture as functional art. I seem to fall in between somewhere - being inspired occasionally to make something functional, being commissioned to make something functional, and being free to create something entirely artistic. It would be tough to make a decision to do just one all the time. Then I noticed that about a month ago when the tomatoes were leaning dangerously to the right after a wind storm, I used three garden sculptures to prop them up. They seem to work well, and I like how the tomatoes have warmed up to them. The decision was made for me in this case.
