Sometimes I name an artwork because of the time of year or what is happening seasonally that moment. These chairs were made in the spring of the year and the new ephemeral flowers pushing through the snow captured my imagination. Really what I am trying to depict is the movement of growth and how a plant will bend and curve to reach the sun. This is an ongoing theme in my artworks, the sense of motion is used to depict a living thing in an abstract way. Each of these chairs is assembled from three nesting forms made from stack-laminated reclaimed construction lumber and hardwood. I salvaged these woods myself and this is part of my commitment to running an environmentally ethical business. Thank you for your interest in my work.
