Timothy Oulton Floem Side Table Burntwood
Glistening like an ice-covered tree on a wintery day, Floem celebrates the beauty of the natural living world. A crosssection from a single driftwood log, salvaged from shores and riverbeds across the world, is frozen within a crisp shell of acrylic, creating a rich visual contrast that beckons the hand to reach out and touch. Every knot and weathered crack of the timber is celebrated, respecting the passage of time and the philosophy that time actually makes things more beautiful. An organic, irregular shape reflects the light from every angle, sparkling each time the light catches it.
