'Ellipse' Table

A limited edition of ten low tables from a single tree of burr elm, designed to complement the grain and colour of this extraordinary tree. Burr is the knotty excrescence occasionally seen on the trunks of oak, elm and walnut but in this case the whole trunk is affected. Why this happens is not known. Indeed, foresters would dearly like to know as the wood is much more valuable. 2009.
