A hip-hopping, jump-jiving furniture restoration artist walks into a bar. Next thing you know, every stool in the place is dancing to a new tune.
Elizabeth Martin, the professional dancer behind Saint Rooster, has the chops to prove it.
Heel-toe through her fable-themed menagerie at Paris on Ponce or commission a custom design of your own. The Grant Park artist works out of her basement or the P.o.P. workshop, sanding, nailing, and painting blah wood pieces into whimsical works of art.
Current eye-catchers include a purple rubbish bin with natural grain relief “branches” and a pair of Lewis Carroll-esque chairs with myriad influences, from Tim Burton to Fraggle Rock.
And that’s a rap.
Available at Paris on Ponce, 716 Ponce de Leon Place, Midtown (404-249-9965). For custom orders, e-mail email@example.com.
