The ‘CLEMATIS’ base, in patinated bronze, is a design of marked character. 
The making of this model by the sand-casting method shows remarkable technical prowess. The use of opaque, dark stone as a table-top gives an unexpected and enigmatic aspect to what is, in essence, a work of abstract sculpture. 

The ‘black’ stone table-top is made from an almost-black conglomerate sedimentary rock, giving an alluring base-note that shows to good advantage the stone’s natural inclusions—scintillating pyrite and brilliant, glinting labradorite, lustrous as a beetle’s wing.
The stone is cut to suggest the shape of a tree-trunk (tree slice) and the resulting form is reminiscent of a puddle. 
A final detail, in the form of a patinated brass band, gives greater emphasis to the stone by reinforcing its contours.

Table-tops may be ordered in other types of stone, priced on quotation
