Jade Coffee Table
06 . 2020
Traveling through northern British Columbia, I came across a town called Jade City where you could buy off-cuts of this deep green stone. For $30 I acquired a piece that I adore (pictured left). My father stated that I over paid. Later at a dinner party I passed the stone around and inquired what each person perceived its value at. Feeling its weight, smooth surfaces and greens that matched the foliage in the area; they guessed between $80 and $150. The jade coffee table is elevated with brass coated steel, as commentary to the elevation of value and perception of natures materials.
