Uvula Low Angle







Uvula Table



























While the form is a sculpture, the top is a painting: a beautiful Madrone burl.
The depth, richness, and activity in this gorgeous wood contributes immeasurably
to the sensory experience derived from this table.

The Madrone is encircled by a ring of Catalox:  another beautiful wood with naturally rich color and darkness.  The ring is crafted with proprietary "S-lap joints" whose strength is commensurate with their subtlety and beauty.

I approach the creation of furniture
as the creation of sculpture.  

I keep in mind the basics:  
line, shape, positive space, negative space, visual mass,
visual energy, and implied motion.











leg detail







When these concepts harmonize with the
right idea and insipration, a piece
such as this one is realized.











The Uvula table stands 27.75" tall and is 17" in diameter.
It is made of Catalox, Madrone, Maple, and Mahogany
with a Tung oil and paste wax finish.
$4700 as shown.
