Hand sculpted base finished using the Japanese finishing technique, Shou Sugi Ban. The top is Black Limba, tapered to emphasize the wave.
The Wave Table is the signature piece of this show, the anchor. It is both a dining room table and a board room table. Perhaps it is a desk. A cantilevered tapered Black Limba tabletop, anchored to a White Ash base. The base is hand carved to reflect a wave, burnt using the traditional Japanese treatment called, Shou Sugi Ban.
The Wave Table came alive from an afternoon of sketching waves when one of them caught my eye and felt like the perfect base for a table. From that idea, I couldn’t’t do anything but bring this table to life.
The Ash came from Eastern Quebec at a time when there was a bug infestation, they were harvesting their Ash as a result, and I purchased a lift before it was destroyed.
Black Limba was a personal choice, it is a product that is very workable, and is easily tracked for sustainability and ethical harvesting. I first started working with Limba when I discovered that Gibson’s Guitars makes the bodies of their guitars out of Limba and Black Limba.
