Jim Rose Legacy Collection - Miniature Shaker Inspired Chest of Drawers Maquette

$8,000

About

This exquisite miniature chest of drawers is inspired by Shaker furniture. Made from welded steel with a natural rust patina and vintage nail-heads for the pulls, this chest has fully functioning drawers. Despite it's small size, it makes quite an impression! Jim Rose Legacy Collection Chest of drawers Maquette found steel with natural rust patina and vintage nailheads Measures: 7 H x 3.50 W x 1.75 D in 17.78 H x 8.89 W x 4.45 D cm JR0218 Jim Rose b. 1966 Bio Born in Indiana, Jim Rose lived in Europe until he returned to the United States to attend college. After one year at Bard College, Jim transferred to the School of the Art Institute in Chicago (SAIC) where he graduated in 1988 with a BFA. His skillful interpretation of the Shaker design is a result of intense research and field study of Shaker furniture, architecture, culture and history. After over two decades of dedicated work, he has mastered the minimalism of the Shaker technique and created his own unique visual vernacular. The quilts of Gee's Bend have become a monumental influence taking this artist's work to new levels of unique interpretation and artistry. His selection of aged steel results in a patina directly related to that of aged wood while his colored strips beautifully mimic worn cloth. Each piece of furniture is masterfully made and intended for daily use. Jim Rose’s steel furniture is featured every year at SOFA Chicago for the past 25 years.
