This stool for a local harp player was made with a few intentions in mind. It had to look great on stage, and be paired with a beautiful instrument. The geometry of the legs echo the order of music, which has an almost mystical quality in math and harmony that brings order to our ears. But just the same, the top I left as natural as possible, because real growth is natural, and from the earth. Together, they evoke the complete whole, to me, of the power of music, growth and and healing.
The scooped seat was made with an adze, scorp and travisher in a Santa Cruz Claro walnut. The legs are made of sugar maple, with wedged through tenons. It was finished in walnut oil and shop made soft wax.
