These tables look like they have animals swimming in the water

Since 1997, artist Derek Pearce has been making tables that make it seem that there are underwater creatures swimming right in your living room.

His series of functional sculptures, called Water Tables, feature coffee tables shaped to look like hippos, dolphins, seals, and otters. The pieces are combined with tempered glass, resulting in a beautiful illusion: animals bobbing in and out of the ‘water’.

Pearce also creates furniture that touch on other subject matter, such as literature and human anatomy. You can find out more about him and his work here.
