The Decline and Fall of Empire

A marbled grey and white dining table has been created using the same materials and technique used to make the Utopia range of surface tiles and condiment set.

Objects and table surface unite to evoke a landscape of simple classical forms inviting food and drink to animate the scene.

The triptych of table top photographs capture different phases throughout the decline and final fall of its use.  Taking inspiration from Thomas Cole’s series of paintings ‘The Course of Empire’ this triptych captures the final 3 stages from the ‘Consummation of Empire’, to ‘Destruction’ to ‘Desolation’.
