Pedestal Table - Sands - patinaed brass and copper
I make pedestal tables in an iconic, modern, minimalist style which evokes ancient architectures of the Maya and the Near East. The tables look like massive, solid structures, but are constructed of fairly thin sheet brass, colored using traditional sculptural patinas, where the colors arise from chemical reactions induced on the surface of the metal. Most patinas are done in multiple layers to achieve effects of great depth and subtlety.
The standard pedestal table is approximately 23 inches tall (58cm), an ideal side table height for many sofas, and useful as a pedestal for sculptures. However, I created this design to be adaptable, and am happy to build a table to the height and size you need, within the limits of my tools. Tables of this basic design can be made up to 40 or 43 inches in height; I adjust the proportions to suit. If you would like to commission a custom table from me, send me an Etsy convo.
Pedestal tables can be used in pairs to support long side-tables or entry hall tables as well, and lower, wide designs pair up to support large coffee tables.
Glass top provided is 15 inches square (13cm), one half inch thick (12mm). The glass stays in place by friction with vinyl disc bump-ons. This is secure in a calm environment, but I do not recommend these tables for houses with rambunctious children or pets. Some of the colors we use can live outside in a sheltered environment, including those used on this table.
The colors shown are just a few of those available. Contact me to discuss possibilities. Other textures and construction methods are possible for the top and inset side pieces. Other overall designs are possible as well, including octagonal bases for round coffee tables, and other designs if you're interested in seeing sketches of new and as-yet untried ideas.
