Description

THIS ROCKING CHAIR, El Rocker de Las Llantas Muertas (The Rocker of Dead Tires) is one of the biggest jobs to finish, yet its also one of the most satisfying. It is tremendous work to just pick two tires worn close enough to equally balance the chair, then usually a week to get the rubber surface truly clean by scrubbing and then conditioning over and over until it almost becomes like leather and doesn't wear off on anything. Once the tires are prepared, then the measuring and cutting of the steel rods begins, adjusting slightly for each pair of tires on each rocker I build. Once the frame is together, cutting into strips and stretching the rubber inner tubes for the seat are required before I can get a feel for what exactly needs to be adjusted for the person sitting in it. Usually the whole thing needs to be put together and taken apart twice BEFORE it is finally put together perfectly one last time. It is a MAMMOTH job, but the comfort of this chair ALWAYS makes EVERYONE smile with surprise. The first one was the chair I would nap in after my lunch of rice & beans from Pedro's across the street. It is one of my proudest fusions of engineering and artistry. And the incredible comfort even surprises me. This one is truly a piece that always gets everyone excited!
