Bay Heron custom art screen door is handcrafted from ancient deadhead cypress wood reclaimed from a Florida Panhandle riverbed.  A pure example of Mother Nature's rich gifts!

The fired copper lower panel stile enhances the natural green, gold, and caramel graining of the cypress wood and brass screening.  

Spalted hickory wood 3D heron and 'live oak' tree limb sculptures are dimensionally hand carved & set.  Hammered copper leaves (that will naturally, with the passing seasons, oxidize to a mysterious turquoise green) mirror the copper in the lower panel stile.

As with life... this custom art screen door is destined to live, adapt, patina, and become more beautifully expressive as time marches along!

GTF & the DAme extend our heartfelt appreciation to KB & CB; whose talented gracious souls inspired our creative communion with Mother Nature's exquisite offerings!
