dichotomy

29″ x 37″ x 16″

materials: redwood burl, reclaimed ebonized mulberry

embellishment: ebonized legs, acrylic dowel

the story
This table came about at the request of a client who asked me to make him a table with some wood he recently had milled. The wood was a mystery burl from a veneer mill that had gone out of business about a decade before.

the story
This demilune table is my contemporary take on the classic wall table. It features walnut burl veneer over solid walnut edging and sycamore inlay. It has a waterfall edge with radial walnut veneer.

joyous

19″ x 15″ x 15″

materials: birds eye maple veneer, walnut veneer, reclaimed walnut

embellishment: aluminum dowel, textured aluminum base

the story
This table is the latest in a series where I am exploring the relationship between repeated strong graphic shapes, negative space and the illusion of pieces hovering away from each other.

embrace

24″ x 16″ x 18″

materials: reclaimed walnut, olive ash burl veneer

embellishment: copper gilding, copper dowel.

the story
The top for the table is a study in nature and nurture. The overall shape is that of a redbud leaf, which is one of the first things to turn green in the spring in Missouri (nature) and the crescent graphic that I created in the veneer is evocative of an embrace (nurture).
