And some are furniture, indoor or out, practical or decorative,
for grown-ups, children or cuddlies -
- of which the most elaborate to date is the table & chair
painted in wood-stain, now in the collection
of the Musée d'Art naïf in Nice -
The table-top serves as a tray and, when in place, holds a bottle.
In-between are ornamental table sculptures, of flowers mostly -
...but also of a 'cello, waves...
a sculpture of a fruit-bowl on a stand...
and flowers that serve as a bottle holder -
There is even a sculpture of landscape:
the artist's house & valley in France![see the video clip here!]
And at another scale, JB has designed stage-sets
that use a system that has all the 'flat-pack'
advantages of portability.
The principle is simple and long-known, but JB's
exploitation of it carries his own original stamp,
including a sense of humour
- viz the design for a washing-up brush holder.
Apart from the portability, the designs minimise
the surface of the panel that is left unused.
