Domestic Black Cherry with Copper Entry Table

Dimensions: 72″l X 17″d X 34″h (top), 37-1/4″h (back)

This is a part of my most recent work. The commission is for a group of pieces for a home in Sedona, Arizona. The design criteria was to express influences of both the Southwest and the Arts & Crafts period, circa 1900. For this entry table, I created a unique piece exclusively for the entry of this home.

I designed a three-dimensional copper inlay in the backboard depicting the silhouette of the view from their home. The carefully chosen wood for the backboard reflects the undulating rock strata in its flowing grain. A motif of pierced (cutout) squares is used throughout the client’s house. This motif played into the design seen in this piece.
