The bench substrate that Stamford Downtown provided the artists to work with is made from pressured treated wood and pressure treated plywood. The benches will be placed outdoors all around Downtown Stamford, CT from June thru September. Still, I weatherproofed and primed the pressured treated wood before beginning my glass mosaic application. I will write more fully about the methods and application for this project once it's completed.
