Metal Accent Chairs :: Contemporary Sculptural Furniture, Entry, Living Room, Outdoors

Playful design brings personality to this metal chair featuring a gong and striking mallet. Steel, naturally-acquired natural rust patina, hand-brushed Penetrol oil finish.

CERTIFICATION OF AUTHENTICITY
Each work of art is signed by Lisa Fedon.

FABRICATION PROCESS
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. Finally, striking mallet made from steel and rubber is addede to the chair.

NOTEWORTHY
Each piece has its own rust patina character so no two items will be exactly alike. If left outside exposed to the elements, this piece will age with time. If one desires, Penetrol oil can be applied once a year to maintain the lustre appearance.

Dimensions: 36"h x 20"w x 23"d
