The Art of James Mellick: Nikita's Puck
                                                                                    Nikita’s Puck, 2003
                                                              Private Collection, Dr. Larry Mellick, Augusta GA.
                                                    Life-sized, Laminated and Carved Maple with copper details

Nikita’s Puck was commissioned by my brother as a gift to his son. My nephew played hockey and loved his dog Nikita so I combined the two by using a hockey puck design as a base for the dog. This is the first time that I turned a dog into a pedestal table. The table top is key locked and removable from the feet and tail.
