A couple who bought the “Hats off to the Colonies” hat- and coatstand loved it so much they asked Leon Muller (www.artthirst.com) to request me to make them something as a gift for a friend. I had a whole three days, so it was very tight, but here’s the result (which they all loved).
Provenance: a piece of eucalyptus from a forest fire, a plough disk, a gnarled metal patio chair…which all became “La Cage au Feu”, a functional art hatstand, 1800mm high and heavy. Finished in waterbased glaze and handwaxed with ProNature Wax Balm.
Remember the last of two Art Routes this year: 25th and 26th of October. It’s one of the best-kept art secrets of the Western Cape: www.baardskeerdersbosartroute.com
