Furniture as art.

Follow if you can: My grandmother's cousin's grandson goes to school right down the street from me and I just met him this year. How small is this world?! His name is Benjamin Morris and interesting enough, we are both into art and design- and probably the only ones in our entire family. We got the gene. Needless to say, meeting Ben clarified any adoption rumors since my family is mostly a math/science kind.

He makes some of the most beautiful wood-working pieces I've ever seen and has a show this Friday 5pm-8pm at MECA in Portland (go in at the Free Street entrance). I would flip out if this chair was in my house. GO if you are in Portland- it's also First Friday of the month and all the art galleries are open. Support the arts!
