Dimensions: Dimensions: 22” wide, 30” high, 24” deep

Materials: African Mozambique

Date: Completed for show in 1971; subsequent commissions executed

Description: Chair/sculpture laminated and carved in Mozambique. The sculpture connects the pedestal, seat, and arm in one uninterrupted line, resulting in a sweeping, graceful arc reminiscent of the classic pose of a victorious bullfighter.
Thoughts on my work: Sculpture has three dimensions. My work has a fourth: the sensation of touch, and yet a fifth: the pleasure of use. If an object is conceived as a piece of sculpture, but feels good and also has a function, it is a richer experience for both maker and user.
