Curtis Paddock, Maui

Deco Petro Hall Table
Sapele, Mahogany, Koa, maple.

The Hawaiian petroglyph is one of the most enigmatic expressions of the ancient peoples here.  In its primitive simplicity it leaves much to the imagination.  It speaks to the universal human impulse to leave behind some mark of our passing, some record of our hopes and dreams. I have chosen the design vernacular of Art Deco as it is a transitional form, embodying elements of the classic antique and the emerging modernist ideals.

Thus, through a process of anthropomorphic deconstruction I was able to adapt  the petro/icon  and give it life and functionality, and perhaps to leave my “mark” as well.
