Description: A coffee table with a trompe l’oeil theme. The two main pedestals rest on the floor, separated by a serpentine cleft making them appear riven from one block. A third small segment is epoxied to the underside of the glass a few inches from one of the main pedestals. Its positive shape and its negative counterpart in the pedestal make it appear to have been carved from its base, floating away in space.
