Console Table in Spalted Maple
Wood Console Table
Evoking the elegance and stillness of a Heron in pose, this table is part of a Marsh series done in collaboration with my wife, ceramic artist Alex Kurtz. The Alder wood floating-top console table has a rich light brown tone and has a hand made ceramic tile insert of a Heron, done by Alex. An especially rich inset of spalted maple in the top gives the impression of the heron standing in the morning mists.
Inset panels of spalted maple in the front and back skirt. Mortise & tenon construction. A walnut wood mitered edging surrounds the Heron tile. Hand rubbed poly/oil finish. The inset glazed ceramic chop is our signature to the piece.
