Road Ends Sculpture- Reflections. Ceramic detail

This sweeping ceramic tiled seat wrapped around natural rock outcrops echoes the shapes and colours of its surroundings, and gentle ripples on the sand at low-tide are mimicked on its surface. The concrete structure is covered in specially made tiles, glazed to reflect the surrounding colours- subtle aqua with splashes of greys and greens reflects the sand, water and rocks
