After its long delayed trip home my little Loom Chair is recieving some small acclaim-
It was selected by Juror Clara Kim, the senior curator of visual arts at the Walker Art Center, as one of five pieces out of the total 75 in the show to receive juror honors, and here I was just excited to be picked out out the 350+ entries to be in the show at all.
Here’s a photo of it looking spiffy in the MCAD Gallery-
You can see more photos of the exhibition on the MCAD Gallery facebook page
Marching on towards my graduation from MCAD in April, boy has the time flown by!
Here’s the two most notable sets of the work I made in the last of my Fall semesters, the “Orbit Shelves” and “Monoliths.”

First new work I’ve put up since making the site- this chair was something I made during my summer in Denmark attending the DIS furniture program. The chair is wood, soap finished, upholstered in black paper yarn. Fully functional.
