  The dramatic Penshurst Dining Table is a unique sculptural table which makes a powerful contemporary statement. Mark was inspired  to sculpt his signature table in 1998  after a  visit to the ancient oak tree “Sidney’s Oak” on the estate of the  C14th Manor House of Penshurst Place in Kent, England.

Sidney’s Oak was said by Ben Jonson to have been planted in 1554 to celebrate the birth of  Elizabethan war hero and poet Sir Philip Sidney, although the oak actually dates from the Middle Ages. In the C20th the  tree was struck by lighting and so only the long bottom branches still exist, on the day we visited, the sun was shining in through the top of the tree and out of the hollow in the base, which motivated Mark to under light the piece with low voltage lighting.
