“An ODE is a lyrical poem that pays respect to that which inspires it”
The subject of that respect is those who have lent thoughts, inspiration or kindness in the development of these pieces; friends and family, mother nature; the Atlantic Ocean; Northumberland; New Zealand; the rain
Specifically, this ODE is to those that we meet and learn from on our journeys
“In a world of loveless volume manufacturing, ODEChair displays soul by reflecting the care and honesty with which they have been conceived and crafted”
