Thank you for your interest in my work. This is a custom system using stainless steel bars as well as stainless steel cable and was fabricated and installed by U. S Sheetmetal of Tacoma, WA. The primary design concept was to create something robust but relatively transparent visually that would not require maintenance.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"Poetry is a mirror which makes beautiful that which is distorted." — Percy Bysshe ShelleyThe reflection doesn't have to be literal, like a photorealist painting. It can be a softer version of the home that intensifies its luminosity.
