The technique Evans used to create this Sculpted Steel Bench combines welded steel, decorative brass brazing, and polychromed enamel. This vivid treatment, which resulted in vibrant works with dynamic pictorial surfaces, was very successful for Evans, and was applied to a number of forms including tables, chairs, cabinets, and lamps. Commissioned by a Virginia collector in the 1970s, the bench has retained its rich chromatic palate.
