Love Seat
by: Paul Reiber

love seat
This piece grew from the furniture name "love seat." The word denotes a small bench for intimate seating of two people. The image is my reflection first on the affection between mother and daughter, but grew as I worked on the carving to be more about all the forms of love that bind us as humans to one another and the net work of support that communities and families provide.
It is carved from Claro Walnut, the orchard tree once so common through out California. The seat is covered in black leather.
