This design was inspired by the engine cowling on a Boeing Dreamliner I saw on the tarmac as I landed in San Francisco after having taught in New Zealand for 9 weeks. The cowling had these beautiful, graceful arches, called ‘chevrons,’ and they are for noise suppression.
16″ x 38″ x 13″
material: walnut harvested from the client’s property
embellishments: steam-bent components
This bench was created at the request of a client who wanted a bench to fit into a small area in her entryway. Since the walnut had been harvested off of her property I knew that the wood had special meaning to her.
