...excerpts from my studio work at cranbrook...

left-handed writing desk [orig. posted 2005.03.27 at 06:15 PM]

as you may know the architecture department hosts a chair show each year... this year it will be taking place at the CAID in Detroit on April 9 from 6-11pm. you can find out more information on this at the CAID website [specifically for our show entitled Holy Sit!]

as a preview of this show, we hosted a Forum Gallery show on campus with it's reception last friday night to a large turnout and rave reviews [as they say]... but it was certainly a good show. anyways, back to my work... here are a couple process shots of my writing desk. i intend this to be one of a series of three chairs. they are found chairs that don't provide a level of functionality needed to warrant keeping them. i intend to add that functionality. the first is a left-handed writing desk. i'll get some more finished photos up here when i can, but here are some shots of the chair without the book rack on the side and of the rack being bent. both the writing surface and the book rack are approx. 1/4" thick mild steel. the frame is 3/4" angle iron and the clips are 3/4" x 1/8" flat bar. i cut, bent, welded, and otherwise fabricated all the pieces from stock material. the finish is Jax Black, but i am not quite satisfied with it and may be revisiting that this week.
