This Thanksgiving weekend, we have a very special reason to give thanks. With the help of a bunch of friends and neighbors we brought on site and raised our wonderful new wrought steel grape arbor. Rachel Simon, a local artist and consumate renaissance woman, created this functional piece of garden art.
The design and execution was a really collaborative effort that stretched over about a year. Rachel did an exceptional job of taking our ideas and applying her artistic vision and manufacturing skills to give them form and substance. And we’re very lucky and appreciative of all of the enthusiastic helpers that contributed to raising the arbor in our backyard.
The arbor suits the location so well, it feels like it has been there forever. You can see more photos of the arbor raising process here.
