This unique chair is from the collection of Dorsey Reading, Evans' shop foreman and chief fabricator. Recruited out of high school, Reading was a key figure in Evans' studio for over 20 years. Working closely alongside Evans, Reading had the ultimate inside perspective on the work and artistic process. Utilizing his deep knowledge, expertise and access, Reading was able to assemble some of the earliest and most interesting pieces ever created. This chair was originally offered alongside more than 40 other items from Reading's impressive collection at Rago auction house in 2008. A unique piece, this chair with its vibrantly colored sculpted back, exemplifies Evans' ability to create artistic functional furniture and letting the materials be his source of inspiration.
