Geoff McFetridge (Los Angeles, USA)
Monster Dice combines e15’s typical European oak heartwood with the artwork by Geoff McFetridge using laser etching. McFetridge’s drawing is an extract from the story of a boy who draws monsters that come to life and begin to draw themselves, created by the artist and his four year old daughter. Each of the six sides link interchangeably with one another, offering a multitude of interpretations of the story.
The shape and dimensions of Monster Dice come from the solid oak heartwood legs of the famous e15 stool Backenzahn, understanding and dealing with the irretrievable problem of production waste disposal from a precious material like wood, a theme very close to McFetridge’s own thinking. The manufacturing process preserves the distinctiveness of the wood with its individual grain, knotholes and cracks.
