Amy G. Kramer
My chair sat in the shed collecting dust over the holidays until I had lunch in Mandeville at a popular Chinese restaurant and walked through the exotic tropical garden. The garden’s pond immediately caught my eye and became the inspiration for my chair, Koi. I covered the wooden parts of the chair in small pieces of painted kraft paper in combinations of red and orange to represent the fish scales. The seat cushion is covered in a screened copy of an original piece I painted for this project to represent the water and the vegetation in the pond.
