Kentucky Coffee Tree. Mortise and tenon construction. Layered and antiqued finish.
tiles are stoneware with fired in ground glass inclusions. Beautiful imperfection-ism. Acid bronze patina.
Carvings are inspired by Birger Sandzen woodcuts.
Frame is 42 inches wide.

got to find it somewhere and finish the darn thing

you do have the touch there dan .
as always ,
well done .

every time i try do some fancy finish ,
it looks more like the slobber on your work bench ,
than the pieces you make .

I like this! I’d like to smith the copper shape, versus tiles, but that’s just my take.

Coffee tree?

At first I thought that was a window in the bricks!
Your work is really unique! The stoneware look exactly like tarnished bronze!

Dan this is great…The design/frame looks like it could easily be used as the end of a beautiful bed and head rest…have you ever thought of making a bed with your designs—-and setting some tiles in them…it would be really nice! A whole new career, lol…well, sleep on it.

This would make a beautiful headboard or backdrop for a side table. Excellent work!
