Olbrich Gardens’ Tribute Trellis
Project: Olbrich Botanical Gardens wanted a special way to thank donors, and asked us to design a trellis on which to hang personalized plaques. Twice a year they add new messages pierced through stainless steel. The plates begin as uniform brushed black, but they’re left to weather naturally. Over time they develop a soft, mottled gray, not unlike the stones they hang in front of.
Material: Raw steel trellis with blackened stainless dedication plates
