The CANDY Table Series is an exploration into the merging of unexpected materials such as epoxy resin, metal leaf and leather. I drew inspiration for this design from leather bags and jewelry. It's certainly a departure from my other works, but experimenting with new materials and techniques is what drives me forward.
The table top consists of a metal leaf and painted pattern onto which several heavy coats of crystal clear epoxy resin are poured. This creates 3-dimensional layers embedded into a super glossy top. The leather sleeve is sewn with a topstitch and finished with a piping detail around the top rim.
