Alluvium is a word common in the delta and mouths of river regions. The concentric lines in the re-bar back mimic the silt deposited by the Mississippi River. Additionally the metal was salvaged at the banks the river .
The White Oak comprising the seat was milled from culled shoring planks off the road construction sites commonly seen around New Orleans these days. Some planks were culled by construction workers because they were warped. I used these to build the curved seat. Angle iron feet give the legs a gentle curve and allow protective pads to be placed so they are wood floor friendly.
All pieces are one-of-a-kind, yet similar forms and materials can be re-created upon request.
