Naturalistic Scottish Fireclay Garden Seat
We found this amazing fireclay garden seat in the far northern reaches of England, close to the Scottish border. Shaped like a tree trunk, it is covered with bark, leaves, knotholes and even a few seedpods, all hand-sculpted in bas relief. The slightly concave top has a large drainage hole and is very comfortable...with or without a cushion. It would also make a sensational side table or pedestal for a statue. In excellent condition overall; miniscule traces of old paint; old separation at base was designed to be like that by the artist to mimic a real tree trunk. Please note that photos 1-5 show the seat when dry, while photos 6-8 show the seat when wet.
