Lytham Seat
Project Description

I was a student at UCLAN, Preston, and had a project to make some public art.   For some time I had been volunteering with the Men of Witch Wood, Lytham, on general tidying garden duties.   I proposed a seat.    The Men wanted me to use the wood from their woodland, which was mainly logs chopped to about 2ft high.     I found one log large enough to make a back rest and proposed a design with the 2ft logs bolted to the back rest.   I saw it as a daisy design.  The Men of the wood being mainly BAE retirees, saw it as a rocket with 5 booster pods.   Art is all in the eye of the beholder.    I carved scenes of planting trees round the back rest
