The goal of this design was to create balance. Five flattened stones, haphazardly stacked, act as a pedestal base for a floating top. The possibilities are endless in terms of fit and finish. The base, measuring 42x28x29"h can be used by itself as a pedestal or small table. The client can purchase it with a glass or live edge wood top, at their specific dimensions.
There is a certain peaceful serenity that goes along with river stones. You see it in Japanese rock gardens or by tribes throughout the world; stacking stones as offerings to the spirits or to mark a historic site. There is a powerful reference in the simple and organic use of stone in design that calls upon past traditions. This modern interpretation offers many finish options but ultimately the user will fall for the form and the calming feeling it evokes.
