EVENT: 2015 Chair-A-Thon
My chair is an exploration of ancient geometry. I “recreated” just one of many tile patterns found on the floor of La Basilica di Santa Maria in Cosmedin in Rome. I was spellbound when I visited years ago and wished cameras and documentaries had existed when the patterns were drawn and the stone was mined, transported, cut, and laid. Creating the pattern (with color copies, x-acto knife, and thinned white glue) was a great learning experience.

I donated $500 to my campaign, enough to create one custom seating system for one child. Please match my donation, quadruple it, or give any amount you can! Every contribution makes a difference.
Thank you so much,
