STILL AGONISING over how to celebrate the Year 2000? The Millennium table from Scottish artist Mark Stoddart is cast in bronze and features a 20in-high representation of the Apollo 11 lunar-landing module beneath a 45in-diameter top of polished glass. As well as being an eccentric platform on which to rest the millennial champagne, the tables can also be used as time capsules. Call Sculpt Art Creations on 01292 443103 or visit www.sculptart.co.uk
