Designer Coffee Table in Oak

RIVERSIDE OCCASIONAL TABLE

A detailed view of Riverside 3 and the gesture of water moving the river bank

I had this idea from watching the way a river bank was eroded, I did geography at school and was calling on memories of Oxbow lakes and the way erosion works by cutting and depositing.

 ” IT WAS THE CONTRAST I WANTED BETWEEN HARD AND STRAIGHT AND CONCENTRATED, SENSUOUS, CURVES”

Sand and sea also came into it, the way the tide leaves sand hard and rippled, but most of all it was the contrast I wanted between hard and straight and concentrated, sensuous, curves.

 

The top is special; Ed Wild cut plane strokes across the surface then left it alone — no sanding — the oil polish enhances the intentional handmade appearance.

“CALLING ON MEMORIES OF OXBOW LAKES AND THE WAY EROSION WORKS BY CUTTING AND DEPOSITING. “

This is the third in a series that is limited to five
