Description We feel here the cycle of life, as when time does its work and it lets us glimpse the precious heart of matter. You can see the eye of time, the wood that splits or the movement of the roots that we find when man lets nature and life do… The interior of the cabinet is made of black oak from the Marais, a wood that has been submerged for thousands of years in peat bogs, giving it this intense and unique black colour.
The 3 interior drawers are covered with patinated gold leaf. The exterior is textured as if it were combed, then tinted with Chinese ink with more or less intensity to give it movement and depth. Two slits have been carved on the façade where patinated gold leaves are affixed. The handle and base are drawn, modelled and cast in solid bronze and patinated. The base is partially covered with carved and tinted oak.

Solid oak and bronze cabinet (2015). Solid oak tinted with Chinese ink and carved with gouge.
