Mesquite Tree Chair

Click on an image to enlarge.

This chair is based on a thirteen piece series of mesquite tree portraits I have recently completed. While on a trip to Texas I became fascinated by the twisty intricate branches of the mesquite and was inspired to capture their uniqueness. I have paired the unusual shapes of the trees with vibrant colors to create a playful and visually interesting piece.

 This unique tall chair has been wrapped in yarn to make a cozy and inviting seat. The chilly winter inspired me to create something warm and wooly out of my chair this year.
