Spark Plug Chair

Spark Plug Chair


Some people mentioned they thought I am eccentric.  I never thought of myself as eccentric.  I don’t have tattoos, an earring, or even a beard.  I live in a middle class neighborhood and pay my taxes—nothing eccentric about that.   Then about 6 or 7 years ago, I spent a week making this chair.   I used an old clutch plate from a Ford for a smiling face, and bearing cup covers for hands with cut nail fingers.

I realized the average middle aged man in North Carolina does not spend his work week welding used spark plugs to a purple lawn chair!

So. Yeah.  I am eccentric.  It just does not seem so to me.

Despite its fearsome appearance, it is a very comfortable chair.
