This metal sculpture serves two purposes. It screens a view of the neighbor’s house, but it also makes a stunning focal point that is emphasized by a matching urn in the foreground. This thoughtful vignette adds personality and visual texture in a side-yard passageway leading to a back-yard retreat.

    Very nice. I love it when form and functionality meet in the same project. This sculpture and matching urn do just that, nestled in the surrounding plantings. In addition, the smooth stones piled next to the urn give a nice imagery of water, without having to maintain a water garden.
