Crepe-Myrtle Chair
*wood branch + steel sheet metal*

The Crepe-Myrtle Chair represents my childhood and reminds me of family.
The chair uses discarded branches from the tree that lived in front of my
parents' house. As a child, the tree served as a jungle gym, gave access to
the roof, and signaled when i was home.

The tree grew large; the leaves and petals clogged the gutter and littered
the cars in the driveway. Inevitably the tree would be cut. The tree is
gone, but the chairs remains as a memento of my childhood.
