“THE BACCHANALIAN” DINING TABLE
Heres Temple Table v2. I posted one up last week which raised some fur so I’ll be interested to see what happens this time out.
Its the same theme as before but more developed and thought out. I made it for an exhibition titled “ANCIENT ECHOES” and made it using some wood that I bought years before – you know the thing, you see the wood and it calls out to you ” Nick, buy me!” I was entranced by its beauty so I had to have it and at that time hadn’t a clue what was going to come out of it. The spalted beech was so good it looked like marble but only in small pieces so it went for the legs. The top was a beautiful plank of coloured ash. The freize around the top edge is a dentil molding ( so it says here in my dictionary of architecture) and with my usual mischieviousness,I couldn’t leave well alone, so I gilded the four corner dentils – a gold filling, if you will. The blue paint I thought went quite well with the wood tones. Its all made from ash, coloured, olive and white european. 84″ long, 42″ wide and 29″ high. I’m pleased to say it sold on the opening night to a film producer.
