Last week, while picking up a kid at the Circuit Bouldering Gym, I stopped to admire their patchwork partition – intended to keep people from walking in off the street, when they open up their big roll-up door to the outside. Consisting of numerous pieces of plywood in various shades, its coarsely nailed up on its frame, and beautifully serves its function.
Seen from a distance, the surface has this rich, multi tone, brown patina and a pattern that resembles an expensive wool area rug. Up close, you can see how simply it was all put together. Plywood pieces in different sizes, some stained, some burned, some cracked – all weathered to varying degrees, and held together with nails. I really loved this. First chance I get, I’m going to use it for a fence somewhere. What an awesome backdrop this would be for a few phenomenal plant vignettes – don’t you think?
