Purveyor of Bollocks to the Crowned Heads of Europe
Beautiful; I'd love one of those here.
Back in the UK, I have a large shell shaped Victorian bedroom chair. Pity I can't show you a picture.
See Matisse's chair above. That one is 18th century.
I have been waiting for someone to ask me to make a shell canopy for about 40 years now, and they never have!
I'd like that in my garden ..... Any chance of getting it under the cover of darkness ? ..... I wouldn't want to shell out for one !!!!!!! XXXX
Yes, stone garden furniture is a lot easier to reproduce these days with high water pressure carving and laser engraving.
I wonder why I have never heard of either of those techniques?
We have some large, beautiful pieces of coral that were gifts to my husband from aquarium clients. I'll have to post some photos on my blog.
I accumulated tons - literally - of this sort of thing when I restored grottoes. Stalagmites/tites, etc. too. Very difficult to legally get hold of now, especially now the Barrier Reef is shrinking.
There's a 15' stainless steel one on Aldeburgh Beach by Maggi Hambling.
I'll look out for it.
are you coming to Aldeburgh?
That Matisse chair sure looks uncomfortable.
Any chair in a grotto is going to seem comfortable compared to the wet rocks.

No, sorry - Facebook puts the blinds down for non members these days. To hell with them.
