A preeminent figure of the American craft movement, Wendell Castle designed this cantilevered chair against the backdrop of the political and social turmoil of the 1960s and its counterculture movement. The inscription IN GOD WE TRUST, carved across the front stretcher, is a unique feature in Castle’s work.
