Michael Coffey blurs the line between carpenter and fine art sculptor. A self-taught master with a career nearly forty years in the making, Coffey has consistently broken the boundaries of style and functionality in the decorative arts. Coffey’s work stresses the relationship shared by people with their furniture and embodies the principal of form meeting function. Sculpted in the late 1970s from a rare Mozambique wood, the “Encounter” Coffee Table is an early example of Coffey’s work and was only created in a limited edition of 3. Sitting atop a clear lucite base, this early piece is endowed with an aesthetic understood to be a hallmark of the artist's work.
