PROCESS + MATERIALS
Made in Chicago by hand-carving maple and casting those forms in 94% recycled red bronze. The castings were polished and treated with flames and acid to create a patina. Top: Carrara marble, knocked down from a high polish, sealed.
Jordan Mozer and Associates, Limited (JMA) renovated a hotel on 57th street between Park Avenue and Lexington. The building was originally built by a fashion designer, Mr. Blum, as a progressive women’s residence to attract artists, intellectuals and executives interested in an alternative to traditional women’s boarding houses in the flapper / Prohibition era. The building was built with natural materials that celebrated handmade details such as wrought iron and handmade bricks. To evoke a consistency with the building, the legs of this table were each carved differently.
