Chairs, caskets and the eye. 

This is the second child’s chair I’ve done this year with this pattern. Seems to be the go to for small rush seats. It looks as if it would weave faster than the traditional rush pattern, but it’s not that far off, at least not for me anyway. 

Also repaired my first plastic cane seat. Weird stuff. I know the color looks off but this is close to the original color that can be found under the old weave. So, I thought best to go with that and let it fade to match the old stuff. 

Being a cemetery commissioner, and getting lots of questions lately about green burials, I became interested in casket options other than the old pine box. I am working on a prototype for woven caskets. This is my progress so far on a youth sized casket. After this is complete, I am hoping to try one with the natural materials found around me in New England. 

And lastly, the art lessons still happen here and much of the focus seems to be on figure drawing and anatomy. So here’s my student’s drawing of the ribs:

And my drawing of the eye:
