The Currey Hatfield Outdoor Bench is a traditional English Garden bench. It is perfectly proportioned and finely crafted in the Faux Bois style. A Portland wash will patina with age adding character and authenticity to this luxurious outdoor bench. Its steel base and concrete layers make it extemely durable allowing you to enjoy this piece for many years.
Faux Bois – from the French for false wood – refers to the artistic imitation of wood or wood grains in various media. The craft has roots in the Renaissance with trompe-l’œil. Creating these works is at once complex, technically demanding and extraordinarily labor intensive. It involves first building a steel framework, referred to by sculptors as an “armature”, securing and forming metal mesh known as “lath”, then building up multiple layers of concrete, mortar and often pure cement paste. All the while, shaping, sculpting and detailing the material as it hardens.
