A Concrete and Wood Table is a Work of Art
For Keelin Kennedy of Barefoot Design, her artisanal pieces are all about connecting with something that is real and has weight; that she can feel and form with her bare hands.
“There is a dance between what I can do and what the materials I use naturally do”, she says. “It makes each piece, each pour, exciting and somewhat unpredictable. Like weather. What this means to a final piece may be in its color variation, texture, or hairline cracks”.
In Kennedy’s one of a kind sinks, tables, counter tops, fireplaces and benches;Â she uses only reclaimed wood. Scavenged parts of urban trees that would otherwise be bound for landfill are incorporated into some of her most treasured art pieces for their lasting beauty.
