When at my beach home in Maine, I am a daily searcher for treasures brought in by the tide.  I currently live 1500 miles from any ocean but I still go to the water.  I was shocked and delighted to find that the 10,000 lakes and the Mighty Miss also throw their treasures onto their beaches.   I collected.  I sorted.  I made art.  This chair is a record of my relationship with the water in Minnesota.  It is sealed with the boat epoxy I learned to use in Maine as I mended boats.  This chair is indestructible, just the people of Maine and Minnesota.
