Overview

Fragrant Flow A garden bench of teak and blue stone. The stone was used as found object and the wood structure inspired by and built around it. The text says “Awake, O North wind, Come thou South, Blow upon my garden that the fragrance thereof may flow out.” Song of Solomon 4:16

Goals

Ants Totem - A walnut tree had been taken down in a town nearby. When milling we discovered an ant colony in the butt, clearly doomed. We save an odd cut off where the ants had caused damage and eventually made this tripute to the lost colony. The verse is "Consider the ant, Observe her ways and be wise." Proverbs 6:6
