These highly customizable lightweight concrete side or coffee tables or stools with leaf impressions from real leaves can make a natural addition to nearly any room or outdoor environment. The fossil-like leaf imprints soften the brutalist material of cement into an organic and rustic presence. The imprints have some texture to them, which offers visual and tactile interest, but will not tip over glasses, vases, or any other tabletop items placed on the surface. All works have natural variations in color and design due to leaf availability, material variations, weather, and other factors. Finishes are typically matte to lightly satin. Most sizes have an inset “foot” that allows for easy lifting. Tables weigh between ~35-50 pounds depending on size.
Possible foliage impressions include artichoke, rhubarb, nasturtium, redwood, smoke bush, tobacco, sage, acanthus, various ferns, grass blades, corn husk, geranium, burdock, potato, echium, and many more. See the Leaf Library for information on leaves and seasonal availability. Leaves can be composed in various ways, whether they are draping over the top and sides, numerous or minimal, placed in a “natural” way or more designed pattern. Different varieties of leaves can be combined on a single piece. Leaves are often grouted with two or three different colors to emphasize their botanical detail. Contact for questions about leaf recommendations, availability, or for more images of particular leaf designs or more ideas. We have likely cast over 200 varieties of plants, and we continue to love to experiment with new leaves!
