Elemental Balance

Wood Console Table

Created by Derek Secor Davis
Part of the artist's "Elemental Production Series," this console table bears similarities to its slightly larger counterpart, the "Elemental Hall Table." Designed with the same motifs as its predecessor, this piece explores balance, form, and color.

As with all the pieces in this series, this table is fabricated largely from reclaimed and post-consumer materials. The green base is formed and carved from reclaimed Douglas fir and finished with milk paint, an old-fashioned paint consisting of pigments, clay slip, and milk proteins. The black supporting curve is fashioned from reclaimed pieces of plywood that are cold bent laminated to form the curve. The top of the table consists of cherry wood with a hand-rubbed, moisture-resistant polyurethane finish.
