Serpientes y Monstera

Serpientes y Monstera

This design was initially used as a carving demonstration during the Herter Brothers’ Furniture Exhibition at The High Museum of Atlanta several years prior to it’s completion as a table. The idea developed as I lazily watched a worm crawling and burrowing through small leaves and grass.

One of my favorite  plants is the Monstera with it’s giant leaves with holes. My fascination for snakes added to a more tropical interpretation of my languid observations. The legs are the image of that most malodorous, but amazing Amorphophallus titanum or the corpse flower which bloomed at The Atlanta Botanical Gardens in 1998.

Material: cherry, curly maple, glass

Linen Hall Table with Mirror

Linen Hall Table with Mirror

This was, on paper, one of the three submitted designs for a client ( chosen was the Wind-Blown Hall table and Mirror). The narrow depth of  8″ for the relative height is not the ideal for stability, but the space was tight.  I chose to make all three  ‘hall-table-with-mirror’ ideas as they presented different challenges and views within the dimensions.

The ‘cloth’ between the legs gave greater rigidity to this table.

As in other pieces with  carved hanging cloth folds, this table has, for me,  a “quiet” appearance
