VICTORIAN TUB CHAIR IN LEATHER
I have a small obsession with three-dimensional forms created from one-dimensional materials – I posted about Tomas Rivas before and his full-figured rosettes and columns carved onto walls and created from the drywall’s paper liner and gypsum plaster. I was delighted to find another example of this type of art displayed on furniture and other pieces by Helen Amy Murray
She uses a sculpting and cutting method called “Shoal” to create three-dimensional patterns and objects from leather and other fabrics. Through this process, she is able to create rich superficies and impart movement and fluidity to an otherwise stale surface.
