The Artist and the Machine Shop

Flower Fence, a custom installation by Trellis Art Designs.In 2000, avid gardener and artist Diane Sauer realized the possibilities for making trellises and stakes for her garden at the machine shop, run by her husband, Warren Sauer.

Using computer aided design programs and the help of the skilled people at the machine shop, Diane began bringing her ideas to life in the form of simple and elegant trellises, gates, mailbox stands and other decorative art.
