Serpentine Bench

William Wordsworth’s poem ‘Yew Trees’ inspired the design of this bench. The words ‘Serpentine’, ‘Intertwisted fibres’ and ‘Up coiling’ were used as a starting point from which initial sketches were made. A 1:5 scale model made in yew wood was made before making a full sized version, photographed here in oak.
