The concrete in this piece is worked extensively. Cast in a mold and then finished with various different coats to create a natural hand finished piece that is always unique. I enjoy using materials that are often used in an industrial way and adapting them to become handcrafted pieces.
The piece also uses a vegetable tanned leather and cherry wood. Cherry is a beautiful golden brown hardwood that provides an amazing chatoyance. The bottom rail of the piece offsets what would be the smaller table’s stretcher so as to ‘merge’ the two tables. This part is connected with walnut dowels that can be seen as a contrast to the cherry and proudly display some of the joinery in the piece.
