Notes from the archive: In 1962, Wendell Castle moved to Rochester NY to assume a teaching position at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Here he began experimenting with stack lamination, a technique mostly used for sculpture, which he later incorporates into his furniture. His works in this style are extremely rare and include only a few sculptures, a Chest of Drawers with branch-like legs, and an organically shaped Music Stand. Stack lamination continues to be a technique that Castle uses today to allow for organic sculptural shapes to be carved from layers of wood. This one-of-a-kind sculpture, is a lyrical example of Castle's early mastery in wood and a true museum piece.
