The Sculptural Design Of Paul Evans

Paul Evans work is a mix of mid-century furniture design and mixed-metal sculpture in bronze, silver and gold. A Pennsylvanian, Evans studied sculpture, metal work, silver and gold smithing at several institutes, including the Cranbrook Academy of Art. He began making metal furniture and exhibited in a group show in 1957 at the Museum of Contemporary Crafts in New York. In 1964 Evans became the designer of furniture manufacturer Directional. With Directional, Paul Evans introduced his very collectible editions such as the Argent series, Sculpted Bronze, and the highly popular Cityscape collection. Most Paul Evans pieces were signed, and all of the custom items bear a signature and a date. Paul Evans furniture has been bringing record breaking prices at antique shows and auctions across the U.S. and Europe. (1931-1987)
