Zigzag occasional tables are designed to create a bold graphic zigzag image that blends from light to dark. The tabletop forms a design which allows light to cast shadow beneath the table.
Below shows some of the technical side to the design process, the table is designed in three sizes ranging from 90cm to 65cm.
The machine uses a fine jet of high-pressured water mixed with garnet sand, to enable cutting through glass, metal, wood, plastic in fact, almost any material required to complete the piece.
This video shows the slow process of the water jet cutter cutting through 10mm CrystalClear float glass the process with take over 5 hours to cut half the parts needed form the tabletop.
This is repeated once again in the Steel Grey glass sheet and has taken all day to cut and lightly clean.
Once cleaned from the garnet sand the individual pieces are pack into travel containers ready to travel back to Cumbria, where the individual pieces can be fused together.
Framework for Zigzag tabletop, made from 20 mm box sections stainless steel, and 20 mm angle bar, all metal work was completed by Neil Ivisona very talented metalworker. So pleased with the end result. The frames still need to little bit of work to the surface, which I intend to sandblast to give a satin finish.
