Two Benches commissioned by the National Trust to be sited at Carnewas in Cornwall, one is a cloud bench which lists 10 cloud formations carved into the surface and the other is a constellation gazing bench with three constellations carved and represented by holes drilled and glass marbles inserted for the brightess stars within the constellation. The idea is you lie one these with your head on the wooden headrest and look at the sky night or day. They are surprisingly comfortable to lie on.
