Rustic Insight


This rough fence has stood for decades on the property line of a neighborhood house. Every time I’ve gone past it, I’ve noted that it echoes the edge of classic Asian ceramic ware.

It’s fascinating to realize that bending a pruned branch back against its natural curve yields such an elegant and durable line. 

The house is a few blocks south of Seattle’s Asian Art Museum, Dr. Richard Fuller’s gift to the city that perches on the front stoop of the Pacific.
