The Chair …

December 28, 2021

This was not my first attempt at an upholstered seat. With some foam left over from previous project I made a settee and while it was very lovely it was not in proportion to the dolls. They are 1:6 I think, with disproportionately long legs. The first settee was possibly 1:5 or 1:55 is useful in my films to set a scene or give comedic effect, neither is a bad thing, but a bigger/ better chair was required.  I did not have adequate foam, so the result is rather ungainly … so what’s new?  I cut the foam with a breadknife and covered with off white cotton stockinette and needed a more pleasing cover. I chose brown felt and stitched it coloured threads and is acceptable and suits my appreciation to the common objects.

Inspired by a book by Pablo Neruda called ‘Odes to common things’ and my aversion fancy pants technology and life style, I wish to celebrate the ordinary.  During lock down my familiar objects like my comfortable chair afforded me such comfort and joy.
