This Spring Sprang Sprung table by Maine’s Bonnie Bishoff and J. M. Syron started small and grew bigger.
Bonnie explains that, “The table started as a request from a client to make a board room table and she wanted us to veneer the surface with a design inspired by a tryptich wall piece about 40 inches across.”
The polymer artist/furniture maker duo had already made several large fantastical pieces for the client.
The design concept showed an 8 ft table that would be 9 times larger than the original wall piece and would require 12 pounds of clay.
Bonnie shared a number of in-process photos that will give you an idea of what is required for a piece of this size. (I’ve slid her photos over from Facebook so that you can see them all at a glance.
