We attended the Evanston Lakefront Arts Festival this weekend, and in between the hand-painted gourds and tie-dyed scarves we paid special attention to the wood arts and crafts. It seems that very small pieces of wood fashioned into a simple shape, identified by species and origin, can command a pretty good price.
One display that drew a lot of attention was an artist that made chairs in the shape of guitars. Andrew Larkin's chairs displayed a lot of creativity, and the well-heeled crowd responded. They are chairs that can be sat in (if you're less than 250 pounds) made from the same woods as those often used in a guitar. The neck is steam bent to achieve a curved shape.
