A glimpse of what’s going on in the shop these days — a driveway gate & walk-through gate for clients who run a lavender farm in Woodinville, Washington. As they prepare to open their farm to the public they need a stout & eye-catching driveway gate to 1) attract, impress & spark curiosity as people drive by along the busy road in front of their property, and 2) keep the public away from their property during non-business hours.
The basic design, without artistic components, looks like this:
The panels will be variegated black, achieved via a chemical patina process, and the frames will be finished with a textured rust powder coat.
The really fun part will be adding the artistic elements – realistic looking lavender bunches that pop out from the black panels. Stay tuned for how we create these sprigs in bronze.
