Bird on a Wire Table
by Jane Waggoner and f. is for frank
January 2010

Art or function...a table that encompasses both. The bases, made of steel blackened with a light bronze wax finish, look like a nest or spools unraveling. The strips are thick and sturdy to support the heavy glass top, but their unusual ribbon shapes are jagged and bent to give a perception of light and airiness. A beautiful bronze bird balances on the ribbon connecting the two bases and can easily be seen through the glass top as guests dine. Sitting nonchalantly on a window sill is a second bronze bird watching over the diners. The sculptural and personal aspects of this table read like art, yet provide function for this small space.

The creative concept of Jane and her client blending with our design and execution...a perfect match!
