I adore chairs ....
& I am especially charmed 
by these tiny chairs 
holding up these enormous pieces 
of furniture!!!

The furniture was created Brooklyn-based,
Israeli designer
as part of his exhibition at Milan's

"Ron Gilad's hybrid objects combine material wit
with aesthetic play;
they it on the fat, delicious line 
between the abstract & the functional."

The exhibition was sublime .....
but these two pieces made me quiver .....
with laughter????

'Whittle Chair' June 2009.

Whittle is about less.
All it requires is a penknife and an unwanted chair.
One afternoon I took the unwanted chair out of my kitchen and began whittling it whilst watching an old black and white Bette Davis movie.
The whittle chairs naivety is intentional as the process is left to be intuitive and unplanned.
The original chair is made naked revealing a different physical and emotional state, one of fragility and imperfections.

This is first in a series of whittle pieces

Karen says it better than I do!  Remember her reclaimed plates, vases, and chairs that were originally found by 'the accessorator" and featured at j.roaman in East Hampton...some pieces still available!!!
