The use of black milk paint on the legs and the dentil detail on the top create a stunning piece of furniture art. Egypt II Side Table was inspired by Egyptian furniture details and Art Deco furniture as well. Examples of this were also made famous also by the Romans. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dentil. Egypt II feature two solid maple drawers that use finger joints for the drawer joinery. The material is unique; fiddle back spalted wormy maple and was sawn from recycled yard trees. The original version was featured in a show “into the woods” at the Nan Miller Gallery in Rochester New York. https://www.democratandchronicle.com/story/lifestyle/2016/03/18/nan-miller-goes-into-woods-wood-inspired-show/81907424/.
Egyptian art fascinates me because the furniture is still stand today. All due to high engineering standards and the fine details that are put into their work. As a result Dentil details, geometric designs and strong proportions all influence my work. The dentil detail on the top of the cabinet is a direct example of this. Overall proportions are strong and relate well with one another. The thickness and height of the legs in relation to how tall they are. The height depth and width of the cabinet in relation to the proportion of the drawers really works well with one another.
