Embedded Beauty

Scott Garcia describes his sublime ‘Embedded Meanings’ collection as ‘a range of tables that defy concrete’s traditional monolithic architectural history to create contemporary decorative pieces of furniture. Obsolete wooden tables found in salvage yards have been given new life in concrete leaving behind traces of past use.’

I LOVE concrete, the colours and intricacies of the material I feel often go unappreciated, and in fact if used correctly it is a really beautiful and obviously resiliant medium. Garcia uses it in a way that shows it off to its best ability.
