Abstract

The primary focus of this thesis is the design and fabrication of a sculptural furniture piece, whose style emerged from my fascination with symmetrically dividing two-dimensional space. I describe prior art work in drawing and ceramics that also stems from my interest in how a squiggly line defines space. The research component of the thesis places the design of my furniture in a contemporary historical context and explores some aesthetic concepts that influence my work. The choice to experiment in furniture stems from a desire to allow people to interact with these lines as a three-dimensional environment.
