River teeth, Is a piece ive had in the works for quite awhile, the seat and back are one piece sculpted from a burly piece of maple root. All of the spikes are those hard knots that remain after a log rots away, the Native Americans called them river teeth, Ive been collecting them for years. I sculpted a socket for each one in the chair to look like there growing out of it. There was about 70 something spikes growing from the piece that was a lot of work. It defiantly took on a life of its own. Love it or hate its an interesting one.

Amazing…! That is a chair I, or anyone else would be proud to have in my house…
When I think of the old western movies where they have a fight in the barroom and someone smashes a chair over someone else…this one wouldn’t work.

Normally, I’d say that using “defiantly” was a misspelling of the word “definitely”. But in this case, “defiantly taking on a life of it’s own” is quite appropriate.

Unique! Striking! Interesting!

You are a fantastic artist Jeffro. I can’t imagine the work and creative effort you must have put into this chair, but however much it was, it was certainly well spent.

Striking. It would look right at home on a Hobbit movie set.

A masterpiece and ….whoever does your photography is also top notch in their game too !

An excellent example of imagination flowing through an artist’s fingertips.
