Garden Gate

This gate was made for a couple who live in Cedarburg, WI. Both are master gardeners, and fashioned a gorgeous terraced floral garden complete with limestone and fieldstone accents. This gate was made for a special garden enclosed within a fieldstone wall. Because of the great variety of flowering plants, a menagerie of interesting insects visits their gardens regularly, i.e. the hummingbird moth, walking stick, etc. Within the client’s home, they have a large entomological collection consisting of butterflies, moths, beetles, and more. This gate playfully reflects their appreciation for insects, featuring stylized insect abdomens, legs, and a spider’s web. (Lottermoser Image)
