Coffee Table :: Contemporary Metal And Glass Square - Sculptural Furniture, Accent Tables For Living Room

Wonderfully crafted from heavy gauge steel metal and embellished with found objects, this eclectic, contemporary coffee table features a lower shelf supported on one side with a bed spring. Glass top rests inside frame.

Private Art Collection.

Each work of art is personally signed by Lisa Fedon.

I start out by hand-cutting individual pieces from heavy steel plate, tubing, flat bar, wire cloth, wire mesh, or whatever metal stock material I need for fabrication according to the design. Then I grind the rough edges, assemble the pieces together using my tig welder and incorporate other design elements, like found objects or other cut shapes of metal. The fabricated table is then cleaned with salt & vinegar to start the metal oxidation process, and then placed outside exposed to the elements to develop its unique, naturally-acquired rust patina. After several days of oxidation, I wash and clean the piece with water, let it dry, and then hand-brush two coats of Penetrol - a metal sealing oil that dries hard to a rich glossy finish. I finish the process by adding any other embellishments, if necessary.

Each piece has its own rust patina character so no two items will be exactly alike.

Dimensions: 18"h x 42"w x 42"d.
