-> Pit Projects: Thistle Chair
Collaboration with Michael Gittings
2024

Thistle Chair is a large sculptural couch constructed from stainless steel and upholstered in the pappus-clad seeding flowers of the Artichoke Thistle. The work is driven by an interest in the brittle and inhospitable fur-like materiality of the matured thistles as well as the play between utility and complete uselessness in furniture as pure sculpture.
