A single, warped Pear Tree slab, its edges and contours expressive yet defiant of conventional form. The initial impulse: minimal machining, preserving its long, slender silhouette. Yet, the warpage demanded intervention.

A decision to cut, to divide into plannable parts, each retaining its live edge. The result is a creature-like assemblage. Legs imbue a sense of motion as if frozen mid-stride.

An object born of compromise yet exuding an unexpected vitality. The Live Edge Pear Table is a testament to the transformative power of constraint and the beauty found in imperfection.
