Pothole Bench by Michelle Tustin (2017)

The Pothole Bench is inspired by the topography of the Prairie Pothole Region, located in the Southwestern corner of the province. Here, an abundance of sloughs and small wetlands house a rich diversity of flora and fauna, supporting close to half of North America’s migratory waterfowl. A  long  flat  hardwood  surface  riddled  with  multiple  pothole  depressions,  the pothole bench plays with an imagined topography of pothole seating.
