About The Design
The Longwood Main Fountain Garden Cast Stone Bench is part of the collection of reproductions that were inspired from the world-renowned Longwood Gardens. Cast from antique originals, this collection embodies the timeless elegance and beauty of Longwood. The bench is molded by expert artisans to capture the detail and texture of the design, and then finished by hand using a multi-step process. The weatherproof finish will not peel when exposed to the elements, thus allowing these benches to be used outdoors as well as indoors. This original design demonstrates a genuine understanding of garden art - especially texture, patina and the softening effects of age and weather.
About The Molding and Finishing Process
These sturdy, cast stone benches are completed using a closely monitored process. First, a team hand pours the liquid cast stone mixture into the crafted mold and utilizes special techniques to remove the air bubbles, guaranteeing you a solid stone structure. The PSI (pounds per square inch) is measured to its best possible level to insure strength and durability in the stone. Once the stone is air dried and gone through an internal quality check, it is then sent to the finishing department where seams are ground and any air holes caused by the pouring process are filled and smoothed. A finisher’s skill is then required in applying the patina and wiping away any excess to highlight detail. This allows every piece to become a unique and original work of garden art.
