"Cobalone" Benches at Centrally Grown, Cob Benches in Cambria
October, 2017

These cob benches were built at the Centrally Grown Marketplace in Cambria. I embedded abalone shells into them, so I call them "Cobalone" benches. It is located right across the street from the ocean, so it has a beautiful view. The local Earth used was sandstone, which works very well for cob.
