GARDEN ART & SCULPTURE
FOR THE DISCERNING
WHAT ARE THESE GARDEN SCULPTURES MADE OF ?
That's a good question. You certainly want your piece to not only be beautiful but also to have a long life. In addition, it would be nice if the medium were of reasonable weight so one could move a piece around without renting a forklift. Igneous rock is the answer to this....but not all igneous rock...or lava,the word most of us know it by. Much lava is diamond hard and heavy but the lava used to create this work is somewhat porous, and cellular in construction, a feature which makes it about fifty percent lighter than rock. Importantly, because it is porous, it does not retain water. Why is this so important...it means one can leave the work outdoors in all kinds of weather and the work will not be adversely effected. If rock has a crack in it, however, water will collect and remain there and, during winter, that water freezes, pushes the rock apart and, eventually, breaks it.The same results can be expected for concrete garden decor. Some of my private work has been out in Pennsylvania weather now for over twenty years without being harmed. The piece you select will be with you far into the future.
