Description

The Pillory End Table deals with overcoming social stigma. A pillory was a device used for punishment that kept people secured in one place to ostracize and publicly humiliate them. In using the pillory to make a table, we are reappropriating a symbol of oppression as a symbol of empowerment and ability to transcend stigma. Choosing a pillory as decoration allows someone to set their own limits and be in control of a situation, rather than lacking control, as was fundamental to the original object. The pillory comes in two halves, and in separating the restraints, we are creating a symbol of liberation, while using mirror polished aluminum represents having the ability to reflect on the journey to get to that point.

Water jet cut, aerospace-grade aluminum. Hand-formed and hand-polished stainless steel legs, welded into one continuous table base.
