private collection

I was contacted by a couple named Joel and Anne, asking about having me make a piece. We decided on a coffee table. They wanted something trompe l’oeil, but that can be difficult, as there are so many possible viewing points. But things that lie relatively flat will work. Things of paper, like magazines. I asked them what they read regularly. Out of that group I chose Sierra, Audubon, and American Craft. I liked the idea of adding nature elements like the owl and insects. I also added a marquetry note that reads, “Anne, did you remember to call Silas about the table? Joel”
