Title: Leg and Arm Chair. Each sculptural chair with a cast bronze torso, hands and legs emerging from the concrete lounge chair, one with a male form and the other female. The artist is active in Denver, Colorado and is known for large scale, public art commissions. A similar pair are in the collection of Denver Art Museum.

The sculptures can be placed indoors or outdoors. This series was mostly by commission so the artist often incorporated actual casts of the arms and legs of the client for the sculpture making each artwork one of a kind. Examples using bronze with the concrete are more scarce. This sculpture series was also done in bench form (See: Northwest Community Park, Denver, CO).
