Kelp Chair by Julia Lohman

Kelp Chair by Julia Lohman

Julia and her partner are experimenting with kelp from Japan and Ireland to use as a natural material for lamps and objects. They have set up a temporary workshop in the Nilufar Gallery on Via Della Spiga demonstrating the process of soaking and forming the kelp into numerous sculptural configurations. This Saturday, the culmination of their efforts over the next few days will be on display.
