Growing furniture

A student had the beginnings of a project that reminded me of the work of Diego Giacometti the Italian Swiss designer and sculpture. He worked under the shadow of his more famous brother Alberto but has a solid body of work. I have been very attracted to the potential of brass furniture. One of my favorite memories of a trip to Paris long ago is seeing the Giacometti furniture posed in various resting places in the Picasso Museum.
