Spark Tart

On to metal...


One of our local design divas wields a mean blowtorch, taking the current popularity of metalics to a whole new level! Maintenance welder turned furniture fabricator, Kate Tupper sheds a new light (a really freakin' hot one) on the design industry with her indoor/outdoor one of a kind pieces. From a chaise to a wingback, she uses both new and found bits and bolts to create a modern take on classic shapes for a signature piece that is as sculptural as it is functional (although you might look into a lovely cushion or two as well).



Look here at Spark Tart for more...

Aren't these cool!
I think I saw the wing back chair at the Craft Connection - right? She is so talented.
Thanks!

What a cool idea! I love the top photo, cool contrast. It would make excellent deck furniture. Thanks for the post!
