New Quote Added to “Quotables”

I am reading Wharton Escherick: The Journey of a Creative Mind, written by Mansfield Bascom.  It’s a fascinating book, exploring Wharton’s background and how he evolved as an artist.

This quote, from page 232, speaks to the difficulty of making sculptural furniture.

Almost yearly, some furniture manufacturer would seek a design that could be mass-produced, but, unlike the popular machine-oriented planar and rectilinear contemporary designs, Wharton’s variable, compound curves required too much skilled hand-shaping and sanding to make replication economically feasible.

– Mansfield Bascom
