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."

At first glance I thought it was an octopus table, but still very cool! I think it would be a lot of fun to make some of our own furniture... I noticed he has some marionettes as well :P

That's cool, but a little scary-looking!

I'm sorry I haven't been by in so long--you always find such interesting art:)

Nice artworks collected here. May I ask: What is that picture on your desktop? Where can I find it?

Vladmir: I apologize. I'd like to let you know but I no longer recall. It was an image saved on my old PC. I'll let you know if I ever come across it again.
