Nautilus Chair

The Nautilus chair was created during an artist residency at Anderson Art Ranch. A Chinese armchair from the Ming Dynasty inspired the form. Unlike this chair's Chinese counterpart, the stays that form the back of the chair also serve as the arms. The seat is fashioned from hand-shaped beetle-kill lodge pole pine. Both the seat and stays are painted with custom-tinted milk paint. The metal base chair emerges from the voids between the slats to give the design a lighter feel.

Dimensions: 24″ (w) x 20″ (d) x 34″ (h) 18" (seat height)
