This chair was inspired by the bent maple furniture of Frank Gehry back in the early 1990's. I build it by bending strips of steel on a rolling mill, then MIG welded them together at the edges. At each intersection, I drill a small hole with a drill then brazed bronze into the hole with an Oxy-Acetylene torch, to create a small detail. It was made of 3 separate pieces that were then welded together to form the chair. To finish the chair, I brushed it down with ScothBrite pads to give it a little texture, which from a distance, makes it look like fabric. Then finally, I wax to the metal to keep it from rusting. The dimensions are: 18w x 24d x 48h.
