Here is a copy of the descriptions of the latest pieces in the larger ' Hallucigenia ' sculptural series :
(this object available - $700)
Initially the piece had as a top a heavy piece of solid pine, some three inches thick. On the advice of friend and fellow smith John Burton, I replaced the massive slab with a thinner wide plank of African Paduk wood. One end of the plank had been eatten away by termites, a distortion that adds to the primitive feel of the table.
The finished table stands about 18 inches tall, with the top about 15 inches wide by 48 long (38 x 40 x 120 cm)

The whole scupture runs about 36 inches (90 cm) long. Like most of the series, it has been left un-treated so it will naturally weather with time.

One of the stones forms the body of 'Pentapus'. In keeping with the general concept of alternative animal body plans in this series, this playfull creature has five tenticles, not the eight of modern squids and octopi.
This sculputure stands about 35 cm (14 inches) tall. Again it has been left with the natural fire scale finsih to allow it to weather with time..
