Chair #363

CELERY CHAIR, with peppers, carrots, & sno pea
—Designed by Craig Nutt

Eat your peas and carrots! On his website Carig Nutt writes: The Celery Chairs have bent celery stalks for back legs with a sno pea as the back rest. The front legs are either peppers or carrots, and the spindles in the back are carrots on the chairs with pepper legs and peppers on the chairs with carrot legs. Eight of these chairs were produced in 1992-93. Six of the eight were painted "natural vegetables" and a pair was produced in naturally finished Swiss pear. The seats are covered in supple leather in either eggplant or squash blossom color. The chairs have been exhibited in numerous museum and gallery exhibitions and featured in publications such as American Craft.

I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me
are the number of carats in a diamond.
