The different colored materials create a wonderful pattern. Two bi-fold hinged doors with round handles access the inside with shelves. Evans’ interest in working with metal was already clear early in his career. He followed the Metalcrafts Program a the School for America Craftsmen. He also followed courses in jewelry design which is greatly visible in the structured, sculptural pieces such as this credenza. The Patchwork line, to which this credenza belongs, came into existence when Evans started to collaborate with Directional Furniture in 1964. This line with copper, brass and pewter was very popular at the time and together with Directional, Evans created about 800 unique Patchwork items.
