Stitched Elliptical Coffee Table

Two-dimensionally, the top of this table has a loose, intuitive composition where my interventions just fit nicely within the flowing natural grain of the wood. Three-dimensionally, it demanded some balance to this softness: I gave it an elliptical form and reflected the axes of that ellipse into the base as strict, spiky legs. The modernism of the mid-20th Century meets the postmodernism of punk and the timeless humility of mending and hand craft. This table will be included in an exhibition at the Nebraska Arts Council at the end of the Summer. It is available for purchase now, with loan agreement stipulated. $1950.
