Artist Statement

Beau Lyday

Valdese, NC

“The Quatrefoil” is a classical gothic architectural element. On our honeymoon in Ireland, we stopped at an abandoned chapel that had a large quatrefoil window and the image has stayed with me since. I use the motif in borders and motifs in my furniture. It is such a centering and strong shape, that I wanted to make a piece where the quatrefoil stood alone in its own beauty. The rusted tin barn roofing gives the illusion from a short distance of a very heavy solid casting of iron. It is amazing tome that a classic gothic window could be made out of what people discarded as useless and unwanted.
