Paul Evans Set of 6 Rare Sculpted Bronze Dining Chairs 1969 (signed and Dated)

Sold Sold
  • Description
    Rare and impressive set of 6 Sculpted Bronze Dining Chairs in bronze resin with upholstered seats by Paul Evans, American 1969 (signed "PE 69" in resin). This design of dining chair is extremely rare and very comfortable. This material was created from a mixture of epoxy resin and sand applied to a plywood or metal base and sculpted into various swirls, drips and other patterns. Once hardened, the finish was sandblasted, sprayed with an atomized bronze finish, varnished, blown with a torch to provide a smoky look, polished, and then varnished again. The resulting work has a metallic sheen but is lightweight compared with something made of cast bronze. Seats have been newly upholstered in a beautiful blue fabric by Lobel Modern.

    Paul Evans Designer & Sculptor by Jeffrey Head published by Schiffer in 2012. There is a photo of a similar model on page 89 with the description, “Sculpted bronze chair with orange velvet upholstery, 1965.”
