Vine Bench and Miss Jessel installed

This week we delivered and installed 2 more pieces that had sold in the Yew Dell Gardens Outdoor Sculpture Show.

We rented a flatbed truck from Penske to deliver the pieces. Every Penske truck comes with a liftgate, and that's what we used to unload the pieces.

I leveled the ground where the legs would set.

This young guy was in the right place, at the right time. It made it much easier to position the top piece with his help.

The Vine Bench has a new home in the Merhoff's beautiful and shady yard.

After the installation, the Merhoff's took Meg and I over to the Duncan Memorial Chapel. The exterior is made with natural Kentucky stone, gothic arches and trim in cut Indiana Limestone and a slate roof.

The interior is a real treat - White oak beams and cut stone. It has a real nice feel to the space.

This view shows the green slate floors and the oak pews. This intimate chapel hosts over 350 weddings each year.

Next, we delivered Meg's sculpture 'Miss Jessel' to Sissy Nash. No single image can capture the extensive gardens that she has created.

The sculpture had to be moved thru this long grass tunnel. (too cool!)

Remember, nothing is easy...especially if it weighs several hundred pounds.

'Miss Jessel' really looks good in the site that was chosen for her.
