Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes 2006-2016

As mentioned in a previous post, the High's decorative arts and design curator, Ron Labaco, had his eye on some pieces from Front Design's innovative Sketch Furniture series. Other Atlantans liked his idea, and last weekend, during the museum's debut Collectors' Evening, patrons voted to acquire Front's round-back chair and table. I thought it would be fun to look at Front's "Changing Vase" inspired by foil wrapped chocolates and exhibited in Tokyo at 21_21 Design Sight 2007. Read more about the vase here. And visit for detailed coverage of the new acquisitions.

Patricia, I found a video of their "vase blowing in the wind," but not this one unfortunately. Would love to see more of the process.
