The Mosaic Table features a pattern of "tiles" of varying shape, each a small "slab" in the spirit of George Nakashima. Like Nakashima, the focus is on the wood with all its wonderous beauty. Figured grain, knots, crotches, flame patterns, etc. are selected and displayed in contrast to most production furniture where these "defects" are avoided as disruptive and unsightly. The hand carved edge recalls the "live" edge of a slab table. The artisan's task here is to assemble these features into a harmonious mosaic pattern where Nakashima's reverence for the natural beauty of wood is celebrated, but with a more elaborated element of design. The bases are a minimalist column design using a reeded pattern of natural colored white oak.
