welded and enameled steel, glass
signed Paul Evans and dated 72
16 x 60 1/4 x 35 1/2 in. (40.6 x 153 x 90.2 cm)
Overall in very good condition. The metal elements overall present with surface irregularities and great texture which are inherent to production and to the artist’s practice. The metal elements present with light oxidation throughout, which is consistent with age and common for Evans’ works, as well as light surface soiling and scattered surface scratches. The enamel with some areas of minor loss, abrasions and rubbing throughout consistent with gentle use and not visually distracting. The two base elements can be reconfigured as desired. The glass table top is in excellent condition with extremely faint scattered surfaces scratches consistent with gentle use. A beautiful example of Paul Evans’ skilled polychrome patchwork welding.
