Fourgere Dining Table

| SF-355

My first idea for the base was elephant tusks. The tusks became leaves as I grappled with the wax model and the ergonomics of a dining table. The leaves give shape to a scalloped table-top that has been finished with our 'Calligraphers Lacquer' - five layers of lustrous deep red vegetal lacquer that has been covered with pure gold and rubbed back. The table has an air of fading Empire.
