Cast Iron Sculptural Chair by Tellurico 'Aesthetics Follows Process'



This is a large and beautiful chair that can be a stunning outdoor sculpture. Listed price is for as shown which is not an outdoor finish. A surcharge of $3,000 will be made for the application of the highest quality outdoor finish. Please message for additional details. Artist statement as follows: The main focus of the project was to try to show within the object the entire production process. The aesthetic of it is determined by all the steps made during the making, rather than a pre-intentional design choice. The final piece has a clear imprint of the journey the material has taken to reach its final form and it contains within itself traces of all the previous production steps. The project is a sort of ‘’Material Transmigration’’, where an Abachi Tree becomes a series of rough wooden beams, which then become a carved positive mould, transformed into a casted iron rest chair that keeps the original veins, knots and texture of the First Tree. The objects contain visual aspects of the two major crafts used in its creation: for doing so, the production has been divided into two macro phases: mould carving and iron casting. The first phase was done in Europe, the negative mould was carved out of wood in the Tellurico design studio workshop, in the Netherlands, packed and shipped to the United States, where the positive mould was cast into iron. Designing through Zoom calls, the necessity of dividing production in two different crafts into two different continents, the fact that the entire project took place during a year where travel was cancelled and there was no possibility of visiting the casting facilities; all of these aspects are in a way or another present in the final object design and made this a collaborative process. The layered approach of the production, born out of needs and adaptation, can be recognised throughout the chairs landscape. The wood is there, still breathing underneath the metal.
