The Alphabet Chair
The Alphabet Chair is another textural piece with an Alphabet theme. The textures on each letter start with that letter. For example, A if for Animals, B is for Buttons, and C is for Coral.
The Chair easily supports three small people or two big ones. It is a great library sculpture, as it promotes reading and letter recognition.
The photo to the left was taken at the foundry, before the back legs were welded into place.
Authors & Illustrators
Eight Cousins Children's Bookstore, in Falmouth, MA, owns the very first Alphabet Chair. It was commissioned by the former owner, Carol Chittenden, an enthusiastic supporter of the arts.
At Eight Cousins it's tradition to snap a photo of visiting authors and illustrators in the Alphabet Chair. Check out Pinterest for many more photos!
