EXPERIMENTATIONS WITH REUSED LATH | .1

Desperately in need of a new fence and gate for our new pup, Nola, we decided this could be the time to do some design and research of how to weave wood. In this case, we didn't have much time and knew that this was temporary, so we built a quick frame and started laying out the lath in patterns. The weave was something that we had been talking about for awhile, but it really started to mean something when we needed some structural support in the long diagonals of lath.

What we like about this version is the view from straight on creates a solid opaqueness, showing texture without revealing what's behind. However, from the oblique perspective, there are glimpses of beyond. 

More versions to come!
