studio stool

Everything in my studio is important to me. Each object holds memories of the work that has been created; they are my art partners. This stool has been in every creative space since 1977. At one time it was a tall stool with a back, but when I stopped working at a drawing table I removed the back. Somewhere along our journey the back didn't travel to the next studio.

One time I picked up the stool and the wooden seat cracked along where it had been originally glued. I needed to use the stool right away so I taped it together. This has occured several times. I'm to impatient to glue and clamp it. I'm actually afraid it just wont be the same if I do.
