Ideal under all climate conditions, our Hourglass Solid Granite Bench is sure to be a family heirloom that will last for generations.
About The Materials
Granite is an igneous rock formed when volcanic lava cools beneath the earth’s surface. The internal cooling creates a course or medium-grained texture rich in quartz and feldspar. Granite is extremely resilient and requires no maintenance making it the ideal material for garden and park benches.
About The Design
The design of our bench is that of a classic hourglass in that the seat has a curved center with rounded sides and polished finish. The curvature is highlighted by the seats’ chiseled edge. The legs are made from boulders that have been hand chiseled round and then accented with a polished center stripe. Enjoyed for both its classic design and symbolism, our Hourglass Solid Granite Bench compliments the area to which it is added.
About The Finish
The Polished Finish process includes 7 steps of polishing the stone with progressively finer grit polishing pads after the stone is worked with saws, chisels and grinders. The end result is a finish that is as smooth as glass and beautifully reflective.
The Chiseled edges are created by breaking the stone with a hammer and chisel. This process provides a very rough surface or a slightly irregular finish. The chiseled finish adds to the classic look of the Hourglass Solid Granite Bench.
