New River Finish for Halcyon Tables tell of the natural history and environs of South Florida. The corrugated 'grain' can appear like volcanic porous rock that created the land mass above and underwater that became Florida. The black finish is matte and sealed for light water cleaning.

    New River Finish Black Pumice is inspired by the history of prehistoric Florida, which slipped slowly beneath the waves to become part of North America's continental shelf. The landmass that is now Florida remained shallowly submerged beneath the ocean. Coral and shellfish created a layer of limestone hundreds (in some places thousands) of feet thick.  As the Appalachian Mountains eroded, sand and clay were deposited over Florida's limestone layer. Much of the quartz sand covering the state today came from the rocks of that mountain chain. The marquetry inlay of a 'wave' made of banana paper rope evokes that ongoing relationship between the rising and ebbing waves of the ocean and Florida. Add $75 for the marquetry to be installed.


    Your table was painstakingly made so no returns can be made but an exchange can be done for tables ordered without marquetry veneers. We pay our artists, including student artists from the local visual arts magnet public school programs, to produce each hand made table.
