Newmarket, Ontario artist LeeAnne Bloye's original garden art, planters and pet memorials are made from light weight concrete that resembles carved stone.
Typical concrete is composed of sand and stones which are "glued" together by Portland cement. This mixture is used in construction materials and patio stones.
To achieve certain textures, density or looks for her work LeeAnne uses varying ratios and combinations of Portland cement, peat moss and various light weight geological materials.
Like natural rock her work has specks that sparkle in sunlight, can grow moss and can be placed permanently outdoors. Unlike real rock it is light weight and makes an excellent choice of material for placement on balconies.
Mushrooms – Alone or in clusters, mushrooms are an intriguing addition to any style of garden. All come with removable steel spikes so they can be placed on hard or soft surfaces.
Turtles, fish, starfish, birds, snails and more. Add interest to your pool, hot tub, deck, balcony, garden or even the bathroom!
Bring a touch of old world charm and fantasy to your home, garden or outdoor living area. Inspired by ancient carved stone gargoyles and grotesques. All grotesques can be mounted just about anywhere using a simple steel nail.
