Phoenix is a rare piece of exceptional craftsmanship. Virtuoso metalsmith Franck Chartrain has built this ambitious, large scale armoire from polished bronze and squares of wood burned in a rare, centuries-old finishing technique. Handles of horn add yet another natural element to the piece, inviting both a contemplation of life’s cyclical nature and man’s attempts to wrestle life and death into artistic form and beauty.

Custom sizes available upon request.
