Thanks, Clive. Delicacy is something I should strive for more often, I think — the dramatic and declarative is always such a temptation, I’m afaid it must become monotonous in my work.

Thanks for sharing that bittersweet recollection of your friend. I do love the idea of chairs going back to nature — something about the the way they already symbolize hospitality and openness makes their accommodation to the ways of the world more touching, I think.
