The drivers for this design were twofold:
  • Firstly, I had available a small amount of spectacularly wild grained American cherry: this was ideal for a visually stimulating table top encouraging the eye to explore the curls and reverses in the grain pattern along with the variegated dark rich colours.
  • Secondly, I have long had a fondness for the geometric forms used in the Art Deco period. The clean lines these forms imparted on the artefacts created, e.g. the buildings, furniture, ceramics, silverware, lighting, etc I have always found to be visually stimulating. In this case, to support the top, and what better than the circle and the ellipse where their arcs and sweeps can reflect the swirls, eddies and curling grain seen in the top itself?
