Another delightful result! I coo-ed mucho over it, and so I have another chair! Wanna place a Book On It?
Then, I showed Michael the seat "cushion" I made for his first Valentine's Day chair. I had cut up the cardboard he'd used while painting the chairs. I thought it a brilliant move since, (1) his chair had no seat (see top image above), and (2) it continues the conceptual underpinning of re-using (as in, refusing to trash) the materials he'd used to make a Valentine's Day Present for his Loving Mom.
Here's the cushion and how it would "sit" (heh) on the chair:
Michael hated it. He stressed: The chair is supposed to be EXACTLY the way he designed the chair, hole and all! I backed away immediately, of course. After all, we're all arteeeeests here with our strongly-held aesthetic opinions!
But I kept the cushion for future use -- for when I shelve a book on it. Just don't tell him...
[Prov.: Handmade by Michael, Valentine's Day 2013. Scale: 5" height, 1.25" seat base width and depth.]
