The Currey Creekside Outdoor Console Table is capable of adding a hint of woodland enchantment to gardens and other spaces. The graceful branching faux bois construction can stand up to the elements, while a rustic Portland finish gives this piece timeless appeal.
Faux Bois – from the French for false wood – refers to the artistic imitation of wood or wood grains in various media. The craft has roots in the Renaissance with trompe-l’œil. Creating these works is at once complex, technically demanding and extraordinarily labor intensive. It involves first building a steel framework, referred to by sculptors as an “armature”, securing and forming metal mesh known as “lath”, then building up multiple layers of concrete, mortar and often pure cement paste. All the while, shaping, sculpting and detailing the material as it hardens.
