You likely do not know this, but in addition to being a sculptor, I am a lover of industrial design. I have many sketches for functional objects, especially designs for furniture. Today, on this solstice, I am giving myself permission to share them with you, alongside my artworks.
Kicking it off is a design for a full-size folding screen. It takes its form from a deconstructed shirt cuff. I like the way a folding screen provides coverage while getting dressed, while clothing provides coverage after you have gotten dressed.
Above are some color and pattern experiments, from subtle and classic to big and bold.
