Branch studio

Meg Morley from Branch introduced us to their great studio located in Pontiac, Michigan. They make hand carved faux bois pieces, as well as other outdoor sculptures and garden art. We are amazed at how detailed they are. Meg explained that they start with a steel welded frame that is covered with galvanized steel lath. Then layers of concrete and mortar are applied and hand carved. See more at their website. (thanks meg!)
