Private Collection for a Mr and Mrs Zimmerman steel merchants of Denver, Colorado.
A colaboration between Dorothy Ratcliff and Richard Wiki. This trilogy greets visitors when they enter the Zimmermans summer home in Christchrch, whilst blocking out an unwanted view and providing privacy.
The request for 3 distinctive bue Irises, one per window, also sparked the desire to not create a set of picture windows which could look like a static display.
The addition of strong cutting lines which follow the line that a pendulum would swing, brings in a completely different element which pushes the background forward.
Private residence: Near Deans Bush, in Christchurch. Dorothy Ratcliff was asked to employ the New Zealand native pigeon “the Kereru” in this salute to the birdlife in one of our cities favorite woodlands.
Echoing the history of its location whilst complimenting the style of this home built at the end of the 20th century.
