Working in welded steel with copper, silver and gold, Paul Evans (1931-87) was a prolific artisan whose output from the 1960s has risen substantially in value. In November, Sotheby's sold a small but rare 1960 Evans cabinet for more than $150,000. With 60-plus Evans pieces in its Saturday sale, many from the collection of Evans' metal fabricator, Dorsey Reading, Sollo Rago Modern Auction expects some pieces to sell in the high five figures. There are, however, more affordable buys. Evans' collaborations with studio woodworker Phillip Lloyd Powell resulted in handsome tabletop pieces such as the walnut and pewter charger shown here, Lot 123, which is expected to fetch $1,200 to $1,800. The auction also includes works by George Nakashima, Gio Ponti and other modern masters. (609) 397-9374, www.ragoarts.com (click on links to Sollo Rago).
