Great set of four sculpted bronze side chairs, model PE-106 by Paul Evans.
According to Constance Kimmerle, curator at the Michener Museum (“Paul Evans Crossing Boundaries and Crafting Modernism” at the James A. Michener Museum and Cranbrook Art Museum), “the Sculpted Bronze technique combined traditional craft with innovative techniques and materials as well as spontaneous free expression. This experimental technique involved applying epoxy resin over the plywood base; the resin was then sculpted in a freehand form, sandblasted, and coated with sprayed melted atomized bronze.” This exact technique inspired by the technique used to repair the hulls of ships in the Philadelphia ship yards has not been replicated since. Very good original condition.
