Diane Husson creates fantastical garden furniture that resembles living branches and vines. Inspired by the 150-year-old "faux bois" (false wood) tradition, she masterfully sculpts high performance cement reinforced with welded steel armatures. By layering realistic wood graining over ethereal designs, she creates a compelling interactive environment inviting viewers to feel Nature’s embrace. The fine design of these high-tech materials may look delicate, but they can withstand severe weather and, with proper care, last hundreds of years.
As a Virginia artist working with concrete and clay, Diane has been commissioned to sculpt corporate, private and public art. Her sculptures have been widely collected by those who share the joyful, peaceful view of nature reflected in her artwork.
