Chieftaincy Stools

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Tribal Stools inspired by the chieftaincy stools of Ghana. They consider various issues including; politics, economics, defining value, modernization vs. westernization, cultural assimilation, commercialization, and “cultural grafting”. I am using a variety of disparate materials, various processes, and manufacturing technologies.
