Aphrodite


Dimensions: 90” wide, 54” high, 28” deep

Materials: African Mozambique

Date: Made for show in 1978; subsequent commissions executed

Description: A rocking lounge chair/sculpture carved from solid, African Mozambique. The combination of scale, sensuous curves and negative space give the chair the power and grace of the Greek Goddess of Love. Staggered, laminated joinery and hidden, metal reinforcement are engineered to replicate the strength of steel yet retain the beauty and feel of natural wood.

Thoughts on my work: The curving line is beautiful because it has grace, motion and power. It abstracts the essence of a classical ballet or a moving musical composition. It soothes like the ebb and flow of waves or the rush of water in a stream. It captures the universal magic of femininity.
