Creating furniture as sculpture, defined by abstract composition, designer-craftsman Paul Evans (1931-1987) consistently pushed boundaries with his innovative approaches to metal work and furniture-making, his designs revealing the fascinating juxtaposition of sculpture and design. Constantly experimenting with traditional and synthetic materials while also borrowing techniques from industrial manufacturing, Evans and his shop workers invested their furniture with an expressiveness that is quite distinctive in the realms of traditional craft and design.
