City Dressing Table, 2003 -  Mahogany & Ebonized Mahogany & Leather -  Table:24"w x 22"d x 29"h, Stool:12"d x 17"h  -  $4100.Born:1973 in Tokyo, Japan

Statement:
These pieces are part of a new series for urban living. I am contrasting the sharp reality of city life with the comfort of soft forms in the home. The scale of this new work is reduced to suit the more limited space of city interiors. Their presence is anchored by the internal relation of mass to scale.
