This bench is made up of three of my chair designs put together side by side. Handsomely crafted from heavy steel metal plate and embellished with leather lacing, (SUMMER chair on the end) these comfortable chairs will liven up any area around the home or garden. Steel, Leather Lacing, Naturally-acquired Rust Patina, Hand-brushed Penetrol Oil finish.
CERTIFICATION OF AUTHENTICITY
Each work of art is signed by Lisa Fedon.
I start out by hand-cutting individual pieces from heavy steel plate using my plasma cutter. Then I grind the rough edges and assemble the pieces together using my tig welder. The fabricated piece is then cleaned with salt & vinegar to start the metal oxidation process, and then placed outside exposed to the elements to develop its unique, naturally-acquired rust patina. After several days of oxidation, I wash and clean the piece with water, let it dry, and then hand-brush two coats of Penetrol - a metal sealing oil that dries hard to a rich glossy finish. I end the process by embellishing the SUMMER chair with leather lacing.
