The Moon Gate

The Moon Gate Story

When a friend learned that I was building gates, she came to me and asked if could I build her a moon gate. As a young child she lived in China. For many years she had wanted a circular on her land. As we browsed through images, I envisioned the style she was looking for.

The Moon Gate is comprised of three concentric circles—each one slightly larger than the other. Between each of the circles is a band of copper which is chemically oxidized to its natural patina. The circles and base are constructed of Western Red Cedar and finished with a natural oil finish.
