This project was a commissioned by a client who wanted a table built specifically for a “Jellyfish Lamp” handmade by another artist. It will sit in her front entryway.
My challenge was to design a table that complimented the lamp as well as the eclectic style of the rest of the house. It struck me that each piece of furniture in her house was an interesting, stand-alone piece of art. And many of them feature organic curves and vibrant colors.
The lamp has an illuminated blown-glass head and copper wires for tentacles… (its almost four feet tall)
The top is highly-figured Maple with blue aniline die, finished with lacquer. The oval apron is laminated from strips of Mahogany and finished with linseed oil. The legs are laminated from strips of Maple and finished with linseed oil.
The entire building process is journaled in my blog HERE.
