PALM TABLE, Concept
In 1996 I saw a commercial display
table that had many rods supporting a glass top. I took note of this concept
and in 2003 I decided to use this idea for a concrete and glass table. I wanted
to completely document the construction for presentations. Many different
techniques are illustrated; covering the armature with hardware cloth and
chicken wire, hand-building with mortar and the use of a pallet knife to sculpt
anchor cement. The name of the table is invested with layers
of meaning that are derived from the unsettled times in which it was made
both politically for the country and me personally.
