Handles, forks and chairs.

I have a chair fetish and love to rescue the neglected. Here are three chairs I rescued from the old pottery. Two were used to hold the kiln door open and the other was rotting in the water of the old cabin. The blue ladder back chair with the leather cross hatch seat I think must have been a rocker as it sits pretty low. It really isn't functional but I love it so much I would hang it on the wall as a piece of art. It now resides in the bathroom to rest my clothes on while showering. The alligator bent wood chair has this killer orange paint underneath. I would love pots with this surface. My green ladder back I had a new rocker made at Sheridan. I need to decide to paint the rockers black or try a paint match.  Three of the most important inventions of the Northern Hemisphere in my humble opinion were the the handle, the chair and the fork. Forks may be my next fetish.

I have too many chairs that I have salvaged and not even enough wall space to hang them up but I still love them!
