NATIONAL TRUST CLOUD BENCH
   
  NATIONAL TRUST CLOUD AND CONSTELLATION BENCHES
I was commissioned by the National Trust at Carnewas in Cornwall to create a cloud bench and a constellation bench, the local astronomy group provided the constellations and the clouds selected and I carved the names into the benches. I also put clear glass marbles at the brightest stars within the constellations to show the pattern, drilled holes denoted the lesser stars. The benches have a headrest to support the head. These benches are very comfortable and I encourage anyone down in Cornwall to visit and lie, it is well worth it.
