Abstract:

"Wendell Castle: Wandering Forms focuses on the iconic masterpieces in wood and in technicolor gel-coated fiberglass that Castle created during the 1960s and 1970s. These works have forever transformed the way we look at furniture and its making and are fast becoming some of the most important and coveted examples of twentieth-century design. Distinguished writer Alastair Gordon recounts Castle's exciting design breakthrough in lyrical and penetrating prose that brings the furniture to life. At the same time, he tells the quintessentially American story of a pioneering artist who steadily built a career and a body of work in the context of a rapidly changing artistic, political, and social environment. This book is filled with information about Castle and images of his furniture designs that have never been published before, including many from Castle's own archives. The stunning design integrates Gordon's text with hundreds of reproductions, photographs, drawings, press clippings, and other documents."--Jacket.
