Hummingbird Gate

Over a quarter of a year in the design and construction of this custom gate that incorporates the Master Gardener patron’s passion for nature with cooling blue accents that welcome a visitor with a Feng Shui flow. The design is graceful and practical to meet the desire of the owners to avoid a “heavy” look but still protect from snakes and escaping kitties.

As with all projects, it is a learning process both of working with a customer to ferret out their desires, but also to find new techniques to arrive at the look we all want.  I am fortunate to have such a generous and patient artistic community and enjoyed the inspiration and company of the many mentors who taught me about glass cutting and inclusion, structure and metal curing, especially John Benedict of Some Distant World.
