Found wooden chairs, clay, plaster, paint
The Fused Chair is made of parts from five different broken or unwanted dining chairs. The chairs were painted white, chopped into smaller and smaller fragments, and then re-formed into a smooth seating surface. This piece represents a gradient of processing -- from distinct parts to an unrecognizable matrix to a homogeneous soup. My work largely responds to changes in material and form from traditional wooden chairs to modern industrialized molded and amorphous 'blob' chairs.
