Bench_Metal And Wood :: Contemporary Sculptural Furniture, Entry, Garden Decor, Outdoor

Handsomely constructed from heavy gauge steel metal plate for end cubes, combined with (3) 4" wide hefty white oak boards for seating, this spacious bench offers plenty of comfortable seating. Steel, Naturally-acquired Rust Patina, Hand-brushed Penetrol Oil finish, (3) 4" wide White Oak Boards.

Each work of art is signed by Lisa Fedon.

I start out by hand-cutting individual pieces from heavy steel plate using my plasma cutter. Then I grind the rough edges and assemble the pieces together using my tig welder. The fabricated piece is then cleaned with salt & vinegar to start the metal oxidation process, and then placed outside exposed to the elements to develop its unique, naturally-acquired rust patina. After several days of oxidation, I wash and clean the piece with water, let it dry, and then hand-brush two coats of Penetrol - a metal sealing oil that dries hard to a rich glossy finish. I finish the process by fastening the three hefty 4" wide white oak boards to the two end cubes with custom-designed bolts.

Each piece has its own rust patina character so no two items will be exactly alike. If left outside exposed to the elements, this piece will age with time. If one desires, Penetrol oil can be applied once a year to maintain the lustre appearance.
