This was one of the attempts to collaborate with other local artisans. It was basically a simple study about compound angle cuts and perspective effects. It was a pitty that the pictures don’t show the clay work clearly. I find the result was interesting. How do you call those furnitures beside the entrance door where you can leave all the trash in your pockets: this one is just a display, but at last it is beeing use as I say.

Really Cool!

Is the “leaf” made of wood?

This would look great in the entrance of a house furnished in the modern style.

You did a good job on this. I really like how all the lines and angles came together. How tall is this piece and what kind of glass did you use for the shelves?

I like the use of different materials – clay, wood and glass. Well done.

The leaf is of clay, with a sort of primitive petrogliphes on it: I felt it was exactly the contrary to the rest of the design, but I also find it looked great. It’s about 85 cm high, 25 cm wide and 25 cm ¿deep?; the glass is the one that looks like ice. Thank you everybody.
