About

Functional art chair in blackened wrought iron with brass insets by artist Baltasar Portillo, El Salvador, 2016. Edition of one. The "Tomar" chair is inspired by the Celts from a medieval culture. The wrought iron has a patina using the ancient method of blackening metal to protect it from oxidation. Baltasar Portillo constructed an oven with rocks and clay and burned the chair over a layer of gravel and subsequently dipped it in a substance from an old recipe of metallurgic.
