The Black Jellyfish Table

Swankety Swank Showcase proudly presents the Black Jellyfish Table!  This enchanting piece of all wood art furniture measures 26″ H x 28″ W x 28″ D and was cleaned, sanded, refinished, hand painted and clear coated with earth friendly, low VOC paints by Yabette!  The overall square shape of this table is indented with graceful curves, framing the hand-painted jellyfish beautifully!  The sea creature is positively bursting with a near luminescent light and the mass of tendrils invite the eye to examine the design again and again.  

Some say that the word jellyfish is a misnomer as this oceanic denizen is not actually a fish, but “American public aquariums have popularized use of the terms jellies or sea jellies instead. Others find jellyfish, which has been in common usage for more than a century, to be equally useful and picturesque, and prefer it over jellies. The word jellyfish is used to denote several different kinds of cnidarians, all of which have a basic body structure that resembles an umbrella.”

“A group of jellyfish is sometimes called a bloom or a swarm.Bloom’ is usually used for a large group of jellyfish that gather in a small area, but may also have a time component, referring to seasonal increases, or numbers beyond what was expected.  Jellyfish are ‘bloomy’ by nature of their life cycles, being produced by their benthic polyps usually in the spring when sunshine and plankton increase, so they appear rather suddenly and often in large numbers, even when an ecosystem is in balance. Using ‘swarm’ implies some kind of active ability to stay together, which a few species like Aurelia, the moon jelly, demonstrate.

“Most jellyfish have a second part of their life cycle, which is called the polyp phase. When single polyps, arising from a single fertilized egg, develop into a multiple-polyp cluster, connected to each other by strands of tissue called stolons, they are said to be ‘colonial.’ A few polyps never proliferate and are referred to as ‘solitary’ species.”
