Tres Funky

I spent the day today working outdoors under our Sunburst Locust tree. Even though the weather is beautiful the leaves are sporadically starting to drop.

"Every leaf speaks bliss to me fluttering from the Autumn tree."

Great line. And speaking of leaves...this large -24 inch- concrete Gunnera leaf is pictured in a "Pewter" finish. It's also available in "Natural" and I am experimenting with a "Rusted Iron" look. I have plans to sculpt a support column, that looks trunk-like, and cradle this leaf on top as a bird bath. After a rain storm this leaf is party central for birdies. Like the neighborhood hot tub. Tres funky! Problem is I can never keep one around long enough. These find new homes quickly.
