ChairArt Retrospective

"Chairs are never merely defined by their functional roles, and they never have been...a chair can be a power seat, a command post, a spatial marker, a status symbol, a vehicle for decoration, a statement of artistic intent.  Even at their most simplified, they can be both sculptural and expressive - highly sophisticated compositional exercises."   - Elizabeth Wildhide The Chair

The pictures of chair detail on this page show only a few from my Lawrence studio days of making, using hand (and foot!) tools exclusively to create unique artisan "greenwood" chairs.  Painted with milk paint my aim was to highlight the sculptural form instead of the eye focusing on the wood grain.  All have been sold. ($150 - $1500)  Currently I am not taking commissions for this work.
