Cleat Seat


A beautiful memorial

This project was a commission to create a memorial bench for Jack Morgan and involved a lot of collaboration with his widow and family.

The fact Jack was a keen sailor gave the inspiration for the design - a cleat from a yacht.

The Bench was hewn using chainsaw and adze from a single piece of oak 12ft long x 27″ wide x 18″ high. The result was a simple sculptural form incorporating a hand carved inscription on the front face.

A series of images showing the progress of this project can be found at Matt's Picasa album.
