A raised platform, ANCIENT DAIS cradles a vessel. A hemisphere of burled maple represents a microcosm of the world at large. Undulating ocean waters and far-reaching mountain ridges can be found within the burl’s magic. An oak log split into opposing crescents and joined with a center-cut, creates an upward lift and focus, an altar. ANCIENT DAIS brings forward the rough exteriors and explores the rich hidden interiors of local harvested trees. This engaging form is a dichotomy of raw vs. refined, flat vs. round, straight vs. curved, horizontal vs. vertical, and odd vs. even. A balance of spirit and structure, this pillar of strength echoes ceremonial tides.
