Lucia Eames explored a series of symbolic motifs throughout her drawings and cut-outs and embedded them into her metalwork; 

the resultant shadows emphatically celebrated repetition of form and shape.  Wondrous, indeed, were the shadows cast by her furniture and gates perhaps most intriguing, the sinuous darkened forms thrown by her curved benches.  

Note the single exception to this image offering: a one-of-a-kind fabric folding chair decorated by Lucia Eames for the San Francisco Craft and Folk Art Museum Auction, 1998.
