Proudly Philippine Made

Just one of the many fine crafts and furniture made in my hometown of Manila. Here is the blurb from the Z Gallerie website:
                 A long ago abandoned root from an Acacia tree was unearthed in the north of Thailand.  Carefully cleaned of encrusted stones and dirt then judiciously cut to create a warm contemporary form from this organic original.  This table was then shipped to artisans in the Philippines who carefully cast the formed root with resin.  Once pulled from the mold the multistep process begins with a detailed sanding followed by a hand painted silver. Authentic silver leaf is then hand applied and buffed to bring out the final subtle luster.
