Artistic Elements

 

We have been fortunate over the years to find clients who allow us to express ourselves creatively in various media.  We have been given permission to experiment, to play, and to have fun. Sometimes we have to pinch ourselves when we realise that this is what we do for a living! Thanks so much to all of our gracious clients over the years.

From concept...

to a pattern on the floor

 

to winding stairs in a greenhouse. 

Using a plumb line, dividers, and our thumbs, we mark each timber so it will fit tightly into the floor.

We assemble the mandala in the shop, to ensure it fits well. 

The timber frame second floor  is now installed around a metal flower of life grate.
