"a Tavola" a dining table. Purple Heart, Maple, and a bronze sculpture through the centre. Table designed and built by myself, but the bronze is designed and made by Richard Pankratz.
This dining table was a collaboration with the renowned bronze sculptor, Richard Panktratz. It was a great experience since we both tend to think somewhat out of the box, and like the idea of fluid shapely designs. Probably the trickiest part of building the table was the fitting and inlayingof the bronze. Not without some frustrations! But all worth it in the end.
