Cracked Glass & Leatherette Steel Dining Room Table

For this commissioned, original work, Joseph Jaroff combined his specialties of using unusual glass techniques and hand-crafted metal finishes to create a stunning, yet functional, blend of sculpture and furniture. The curvilinear base of the table is made out of decorative forged metal – corten steel with a leathered texture – sculpted into two swirling, serpents that support the glass top at either end, and intertwine in the middle to create an ellipse on the floor. The table’s surface is composed offive layers of glass – three clear glass layers within which float two layers of tempered, shattered safety glass – creating a patternof crackled glass sandwiched between the smooth exterior layers, a technique we pioneered as custom glass fabricators.
