New life for fallen log
NIC Compton hopes his sculpture on Archer Street in Carlisle will not only be functional but also add vibrancy to the area.
The Northam artist’s jarrah log seat was installed just before Christmas and has received positive comments from businesses and residents.
Mr Compton said he was inspired by nature when he created the sculpture.
“It was based on seedpods and plant forms, which I thought was fitting, because it’s outside a florist,” he said.
“The Town of Victoria Park approached me about putting a proposal together and I made a model before making the real thing.”
Mr Compton said the jarrah log came from a farm near Parkerville that was set to be turned into an estate.
Sitting pretty: Mel Austen, Kylie Brown and Margaret Pritchard enjoy a rest on the log.
