A chair that grew from poplar scraps rescued from the trash pile on a luxury home site in Texas. It kicked around for a few years in a basic rough fit form, the carving began as an expression of symbols that are from my heritage and inspirations.
The "stacked arm" came from the "damn it " moment when I realized that the original set were uncomfortably low, thus becoming what we in the trade call a "design element".
The base color comes from salal berries, and walnut husks.
The brighter pigments come from pastel, scraped into a sea shell, and applied dry with a brush. Several coats of oil are then applied with an antique atomizer, then a coat of pigmented paste wax.
