This was a commission I did a few years ago for my local primary school – Jarrahdale Primary School. They were making a garden, in remembrance of a well loved member of staff who had recently died, and wanted some appropriate garden furniture to put in it.
We can up with the idea of a ‘Story tellers’ chair – Maxine’s chair, and some benches that could be grouped around it while staff read stories to the children. The chunky Story Tellers chair was made to be imposing. Its huge and though I’m 6 ft tall, my feet don’t touch the floor when I’m seated!!
The chair and benches are all made from local jarrah, and screwed together. They are decorated with nursery rhyme phrases and related pictures, which are routed into their surfaces! Some of the rhymes are typically Australian, if you were wondering why you didn’t recognise some of them!
Thanks for looking.
