A truly intricate piece of work with a very interesting but simple design. Reminds me of sludge or pond scum flowing down a strong river. The base of the chair and ottoman perfectly mimic the action of the roots of the tree trying to grasp onto and return to the soil like the claws of the excavator used on its stump. The piece also shows beautiful symmetry except for in the ottoman of course. It almost feels like it’s meant to have a back and it’s missing it.
