Tephra Coffee Table

About this project

Tephra, a sculptural and conceptual coffee table is created from layers of Ash which are shaped and sculpted into a fluid, organic form. The layers of ash are representative of their volcanic namesake, laid down repeatedly during recurrent eruptions. As time passes these layers are broken down, eroded and reshaped by nature’s elements. Slowly the shape evolves, becomes more rounded and in some instances undermined to such a degree that its appearance becomes balance defying.
