Garden Lantern

Studio Wildwood finished the prototype for a custom wood garden lantern.

The inspiration came from metal lanterns Greene and Greene designed.  Actually, the proportions and the base were the inspiration.  The grand lantern, all alone, on a long balcony looks so cool at the Gamble House!

The cypress stump is a temporary substitute for a base in this picture.  It seems to be the right size though.  We're experimenting with building a stone and brick base for the lantern.  A bit of a challenge but not insurmountable.

Now we need to find a permanent location for the lantern...
