Description:
It looks and sounds real but is completely faux. Inspired by natures own driftwood, we cut, hammered and detailed a variety of different sized metal tubes to look and act like driftwood. To create a bonfire feel, we stacked and welded the logs vertically and some horizontally then added color to look partially burnt. At night it is almost impossible to walk by without stopping to observe this extraordinary glowing fire feature. The sound of crackling wood sends you back to the simpler times.
