The Orthoceras slab table
A commissioned piece based around a 400 million year old Orthoceras fossil slab.
Cherry was chosen as its colour both sets of the dark stone and picks up the red highlights.
A technically challenging piece as every part had to be made to fit the existing stone. I had a vision of setting the stone in a ring of cherry, much like a bezel style ring setting.
