Clinker Seat

This garden seat is made from recycling half a discarded, clinker-built, copper riveted, mahogany rowing skiff. It has now changed direction completely, rising spire-like and providing rest and contemplation rather than exercise and speed. The esthetic of the product speaks of its life history, loved then discarded and now resurrected in a form which captures new attention.

The seat is made from an off cut of oak from a New Forest saw mill. To prevent the wood from rotting the chair stands on a base made from a remnant of granite.
