Materials: Ash (burnt), aluminum, maple (curly)
Size: 18" wide x 59" high x 18" deep

Description: I can honestly say that this piece, as well as the Liquor Cabinet represent a shift for me. Perhaps a reflection of the economic uncertainty that began in 2008. An uncertainty, as I sell predominantly in the United States, that deeply affected the willingness of people to spend on what are, really, luxury items. These pieces contain a little bit of me and a little bit of traditional furniture. The ball and clawed feet are both classic and irreverent, and combined with the burnt ash they offer something darkly historical with an eye to an uncertain future world.
