Table Slab Single Piece Elm Sculpture
- Sculptural table using the natural characteristics and form of the elm as the inspiration to create furniture that transcends purpose into organic art. - The patina and wear that have developed with time add to the raw, organic character of this table creating an honest naive expression where nothing has been added. -In the manner of George Nakashima the emphasis is on the best use of a beautiful piece of wood and using its natural form, figuring and colour to create of timeless pieces of simplicity, pure lines and sensitive proportions. "When I'm making something out of a piece of wood, I have a long dialogue with it, sometimes for years," Nakashima said in a 1979 interview. "I have to find my own relationship with the spirit of a tree, and pretty soon, the wood evolves as a form." -This table is the perfect height for sofas and armchairs.
