This is David Forlano’s first cane from 1988 and it marks the start of a 20 year collaboration between him and Steve Ford. In honor of the event, the duo has updated their web site they’re selling a limited quantity of their vintage pieces from the early 1990’s. “We’ve also made an archive over the 20 years showing our embarrassing beginnings,” says Steve.
You may take some consolation in seeing others’ first efforts. Be sure to download the artist statement that explains how their collaborative process works and how it’s changed over the years.
P.S. I’ve conquered my flu bug…nasty one.
