Tectonic Plateaus

'Elements of Time' Collection

Stepped, textured cedar wood plateaus, which transition from light to dark tones, contrast with the smooth walls of mottled black-and-brown end-grain palm wood and brushed and polished almond-gold-plated blades.

This sample demonstrates how an ordinary softwood and grass (botanically, palm is a grass) can be transformed into striking materials by the ingenious use of texture, pattern, light, shade and reflectivity.

 

Materials: Cedar of Lebanon, palm wood and almond-gold-plate.
