Cecilia Stanford's Multi-Media Fence

For the last post on the work of ceramic artist Cecilia Stanford
let's take a look at the fence behind her house and studio
that surrounds her back patio.

The previous posts are:

This fence has the aura of being a lot more fun to build
 than the expertise required for her very exacting artwork.

Most of the materials are found, discarded, or reused.

The large square at the top is pressed sheet metal.

I love the glass dots...

...and breaking the tile in pieces and putting them back together
makes for interesting patterns to the right.

More pressed metal.

I had to touch them to convince myself they weren't ceramic.

Send secret messages to your neighbor through the little doors.

And fused glass covers a peep hole.
