Eastern maple, fiddleback maple
40” x 18” x 18” 2000
The maple for each of the individual chair parts was carefully selected for its creamy white color and calm grain patterns. The focal point of the chair is the curved backrest made of intensely figured fiddleback maple with the geometric design at the sitters shoulders. The individual backrests flex independently of each other and are quite long, as they attach well below the seat. This increases the length of the backrest, providing great comfort and an interesting design element.
The chairs are joined together with mortise and tenons. The upholstered seat frames are removable. Upholstery work performed by myself and the finish is hand-rubbed lacquer.
