Evelyn reclaims wooden chair frames, lines the and backs with foam, and painstakingly covers these surfaces with small pieces of hard materials that give way when pressure is applied. With this technique, she’s able to make cracked cement, tiles and faceted pieces of into exceptionally comfortable seating surfaces. Instead of poking you, those sticks will cradle the curves of your body.
