Michigan Benches - Trout Series

Joseph Krajkiewcz's avatar Joseph Krajkiewcz

My entry will continue a series of functional sculptural benches I have designed depicting the state of Michigan. Initial pieces in the Michigan bench series were painted solid colors. I have since explored the pattern of the state stone (Petoskey). My entry will follow this familiar form, in three benches, painted with patterns inspired by trout found in Michigan's lakes and streams: Brook (state fish), Brown, and Rainbow. The bench forms will be created from a single piece of 7ga steel bent at opposite (and ergonomic) angles. Each individual bench will weigh ~100lbs. They are primed and painted with alkyd enamel.
