As noted on my home page I am happy to echo this announcement made on July 12, 2016. It is a great honor to be named along with the other astounding finalists. Lounge Chair No. 2 is the nominated piece. I appreciated the eloquent description on the Masterworks website:
“Lounge Chair No. 2 (2015) is composed of black walnut and white ash, with strikingly fluid legs-to-seat joinery. As a handmade object the chair demonstrates breathtaking technical skill. Its form is sculpturally conceived—a masterful example of fine craft and design. The chair’s design is visibly rooted in Nova Scotian forms, and encompasses multiple strands of design history in one work. The resulting singularity sums up its impact.”
Lounge Chair No. 2 is on display at the Fraser Cultural Center in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia until the end of July.
