Interiors 2008 RDS, Dublin 16th to 18th of May

Here is a sneak preview of one of the pieces I'll be showing at the upcoming Interiors 2008 show in the Royal Dublin Society next weekend. I'm calling it a clinker chair; well because it's made like a clinker planked boat and is a chair. Perhaps Venetian Whorl might be a little more imaginative. Anyway it is made from approximately a hundred pieces of quarter sawn ash and oak which were then steam bent into shape. Needless to say this was a lot of work and the chair took the best part of a month just to fabricate the outer shell. The finish is hand rubbed oil and bees wax.
