Create your own original piece of art by choosing among all of the options available to you with the Sekoya Shelf. The support is made of iron and can be crafted to face either left or right. Then choose from either a multi-hued slate or 1” thick kiln-formed glass in a sage green tone. Inside the glass are air bubbles that will reflect the light, and the edges are smooth to the touch. Choose also from 4 sizes ranging from 16” long to 36” long. Finally, these shelves are available with what the artists call a “riverbed”, which is the placing of pebbles between two pieces of slate or glass, making the piece evocative of a dry river bed.
Dimensions: 16L x 11W x 8H; 23L x 11W x 20H; 30L x 10W x 20H; 36L x 9W x 21H
