‘Another Chair’
Part of the Boarded Up Collection.

I cannot help myself I just wanted to make another chair. A chair that was beautifully hand crafted and designed entirely by me.

A chair that showcased my love of structures made out of raw wood. But my conscience won over me as I stared at a further three discarded chairs that were now stacked in my studio.

At that moment my brief to myself was set, I would make my chair but it would be supported by the cultural histories of other chairs, transparent of its found state and bearing clear testament to its new construction.
