New Jersey Gothic

This is a Gothic trough that I cast for a client in NJ.  We delivered it on Monday and I took a cell phone snap since she had such a nice spot for it.  Please excuse the blurriness but I couldn't resist sharing the lighting, the hosta textures and how the strong verticals of the trees set off the horizontal mass of the trough.


  1. That is one GORGEOUS trough. It looks like granite or something really heavy. Excellent work!

  2. Thanks, webb. It's just hypertufa so it's not heavy. My neighbor and I lifted it easily and carried it about 25 yards to the spot in the backyard.

    This is probably my favorite trough ever. I made one for myself years ago and never cast the mold again until August. Unfortunately it's the hardest mold to cast due to the details.
