“Fence of Good Neighbors” beautifully solved the dilemma of how to create a sense of personal space, while preserving goodwill with the neighbors. Instead of a barrier, the fence's open structure has become the site of frequent neighborly chats, and in fact has encouraged an unanticipated closeness between families. Its undulating open scrollwork unfurls for a full forty feet and casts beautiful shadows throughout the day (and also in the moonlight). Openings for big colorful ceramic pots sporting a variety of agaves were part of the design, meant to add a complimentary but disparate element into the gentle flow of the metalwork.
