'ROOTSY' bench MINIATURE scale model

Definition of 'rootsy': going back to the origin of a style, especially in being genuine and unpretentious.

This is a miniature scale model of our new ROOTSY bench (see the full size version here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/70884770/modern-wood-bench-rootsy-series) for which we took the stylized twigs from our TWIGGY coat hook series and turned them into roots that sprout from underneath the bench seat to form sculptural legs.

We originally made this piece to prototype the bench design before building the full scale version - but it looks so good sitting on our studio window ledge, we decided to offer it for sale on a made-to-order basis.

As with the full scale bench, this piece is made of multiple strips of end-grain birch plywood glued together side by side so that the top ends up with linear striping, as do all the edges of the 'roots'. These are cut integrally as part of a strip, making them seem to be growing naturally out of the piece. This miniature version is lightly sanded and the wood is left unfinished and natural. NOTE: Meant for display purposes only.

Miniature measures 16” long, 4.25” deep and 4.5” tall (40cm x 11cm x 11.5cm).
