Thursday night September 11 we will host two makers from very different disciplines. Shelli Markee, the artist whose wire birds soar up the walls at Click!, will flesh out the space with more flora and fauna sculptures in wire. Steve Lawler, a Tacoma woodworker whose reclaimed furniture line is one of the newest additions to the Click! showroom floor, will also be on hand to talk about his solid goods.
Shelli's wire works are three-dimensional line drawings, capturing the essence of their subject without color or shading. They are instantly recognizable despite their minimalism. The inspiration she finds in the natural world is comes through in the familiarity of her creations.
Joining Shelli at Click! will be Steve Lawler of rePly Furniture. Steve uses remnant pieces from cabinet shops, layered and pressed to create modern, beautiful, and comfortable chairs, benches, and tables. Steve will be on hand to talk about his process and inspiration, and will be bringing more pieces than we normally have stocked. "Making plywood beautiful", indeed!
