Tables made from rotting trees by Greg Klassen

Greg Klassen

Taking inspiration from the trees, rivers and lakes from his surroundings in the Pacific Northwest, Greg Klassen makes handmade wooden tables using jagged edge pieces from discarded or rotting trees sourced from construction sites. The River Collection is made from hand cut glass pieces so that the tables appear to have winding rivers and lakes running through them. Picture above – River Console No. 3.
