The artist blended several elements and techniques from his famed repertoire in creating this exquisite piece. The wood is sculpted in such a way as to emphasize each contour while the curved seat seems to float in the midst like a cloud. It's as if Louis XIV dreamt of Sleepy Hollow before its time.
Like Gaudi's work, the artist began by musing on a person's bones, and the shape that would best support the human form. The final design is a perfect marriage of form and function. One is easily seduced by the curvaceous lines and drawn in by the depth of the polished wood. A stunning piece of art that will bring joy to those who possess it and wonderment to those that see it.
The standard rocker is re-imagined as a dream like object. It's almost human presence makes it appear as if it might move under its own power. One is seduced by the freedom of posture and is invited to nestle beautifully in this form.
