Paul Evans Disc Bar in Sculpted Bronze 1972

The disc bar is one of the most highly sought-after works from Paul Evans’ oeuvre as less than 200 were ever produced. It is a convergence of artistry and functionality and an early paradigm of art furniture. The facade is composed of two semi-circular wooden panels, covered in epoxy and then using a spray-on technique adapted from shipbuilding the molten bronze was applied. Evans would experiment with the technique, sandblasting or applying rocks to the epoxy base to produce a more sculpted relief affect. While it was still cooling Evans would sculpt the concentric design motif. Observers have linked the design to ancient Aztec sun dials, as this piece exemplifies. The interior was designed for bar storage and includes several compartments such as a utensil drawer and a locked cabinet similarly covered in sculpted bronze. Wall mounted and with a diameter of 6 feet (or 1.8 m) this piece has a powerful sculptural presence. Signed PE 72.
