Ginkgo awnings and fence

"Sheets of 1/4” aluminium were laser cut with designs referencing scattered leaves from a nearby Ginkgo tree. The fencing obscures the visibility from the neighboring residence while still letting light pass through and casting shadows that move along the deck. Aluminium awnings and fence were created for a residence and the steel, copper and bronze gates for a studio."

This fence is shown by Lynn Susholtz , San Diego county, Ca.

Video sprouting Ginkgo seeds



These Ginkgo biloba seeds germinated on March 8, 2011, about 3 weeks after putting the seeds in a transparent closed container in moist sand.
I collected these seeds in September 2010 from an old female Ginkgo tree at Avignon (France): Park Rocher des Doms (near bust of Paul Sain), situated left of Palais des Papes.
