when i saw an image of michael coffey’s satan’s tongue table i was speechless – completly captivated by the fluidity, my eye enveloped in the curves. i can imagine this table in my house in an instant – im on a mission to see one in life. 

Coffey is a self-taught woodworker from ny who spent some time in the new hope, pennsylvania area. i can see so much influence from the 60’s modernists like nakashima in the pieces but an independent perspective – i love the play of heaviness and lightness in his work. 

he began taking commissions in 1980 and each piece is handcrafted for the specific customer.
