The Transformer

As a rustic artist, I typically steer clear of “modern” builds, but there was just something about the angles on this oddly shaped rectangular slab that caused me to “branch” out. (Yeah. I know. What a bad pun at this hour of the morning on a cold & dreary Friday.)

This piece was inspired by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and is my definition of what he would call “organic architecture.”

Meet The Transformer, a multi-functioning piece that blends the beauty of many different cuts and kinds of wood: 200-year-old blue barn wood, logs two ways (skinned and with the bark left on), slabs two ways (round spalted maple slabs and a thick rectangular slab), and walnut 4×4’s.

In Rochester, one might call this a garbage plate.

Need a solid table for your porch and prefer the more rustic look of aged barn wood? Here you go.

Oh wait, would you rather have a funky, modern bench to seat extra guests? Flip it over.

Please message me if you are interested in The Transformer. Since I created this on the fly, I’m not sure if I’ll ever build another one of these things unless I’m inspired randomly by something. Anything. You never know. Never say never.
