Dial, Richard
Gift of James Hager

Thornton Dial’s son Richard took the folk art style of his father in a new direction: furniture. Transforming the functional lawn and patio furniture created by his family’s company—Dial Metal Patterns—into usable art pieces, Dial makes chairs riddled with social commentary and whimsy.
