Blackwater by James Burcham

This cocktail table, found at Uniquities Gallery, was created by James Burcham. I know very little about the artist... actually I know nothing about the artist except that his work seems to be nature metamorphsized, and has a great "living" feeling to them.

This table, entitled "Blackwater," is still up for sale at Uniquities Gallery, which describes this piece as being, "...reminiscent of the water-tortured trees of the Dismal Swamp, where the artist roamed as a child. The table is completely hand carved, made of reclaimed wood from old houses and job sites."
