The design in this table top utilizing agate and brass symbolizes the connection between the depths of the ocean to the depths of the universe. The top was variegated to create a marbled appearance. As for the base, it was found partially assembled in the yard of a now deceased metal artist in far West Texas. Some additional fabrication of the base was needed to make it functional for the countertop. It was left unpainted and rustic because it enhanced the appearance of the concrete countertop. This one of kind piece of furniture has the Lancaster stamp for authenticity. Hope you enjoy for many years to come!
