Table Topography

table-1

Furniture maker Greg Klassen builds intricately designed tables and other objects embedded with glass rivers and lakes.

Inspired by his surroundings in the Pacific Northwest, Klassen works with edge pieces from discarded trees which he aligns to mimic the jagged shores of various bodies of water.

The pieces are completed with the addition of hand-cut glass pieces that appear to meander through the middle of each table.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
