The chair is very sculptural. There are many hard and soft lines for viewing and touching. As I build a chair the grain and the figure of its flowing parts gives me an opportunity to create lines of interest that accent the beauty of the wood.
This picture shows the back of the arm joint and the sweep of the arm toward the chair front. Form meets function and exceeds the expectations of comfort in a wooden chair.

The front of the arm appears to lift up, exposing the carved pedestal that joins the arm to the turned front leg.
