MONDAY MENTION– Although I’ve mentioned Former Glory Seat Weaving Blog many times before here on my blog, I think their latest post deserves mentioning them again.
For those of you not familiar with this chair caning repair and seat weaving supply company, Former Glory, they are located in the southern part of England and are frequent contributors to the discussions on my Seatweaving & Chair Caning Forum–The Caner’s Community Hub™ as well as listed on my Cane & Basket Supply Directory™.
Always intrigued by fancy, difficult seat weaving patterns, I was especially thrilled to read “Weekend with Gio Ponti” where Kim and Tim discuss and show through a series of pictures, how to weave this extremely difficult and time consuming cane design and technique used on the Gio Ponti chairs from the 1950s.
Be sure to subscribe to their blog so you don’t miss anymore of their wonderful chair caning and seat weaving posts. Don’t you wonder how long it will take these very experienced and proficient weavers to finish weaving this seat and what we would have to charge over here on this side of the pond if we did it?
Have you ever run across a chair seat design like this and did you attempt to weave it replicating the weave exactly? Please leave a comment here and let us know how you did on the project AND what you charged. Thanks and Happy Weaving!
