    Information totem at Unity Village

    We recently installed this custom information kiosk at Unity Village in Missouri. This display showcases the Prayer Garden and its 12 sculptures. Large display graphics are mounted to the totem, offering information and a map to the nearby garden. The graphics were created and produced by Fossil Forge, too.

    The Prayer Garden surrounds the historic tower on the grounds of Unity Village.

    The totem has two brochure boxes that visitors can use. Campus and garden guides are available from these weatherproof boxes.

    The stucture is made from steel and painted with a hammered finish. It is set in concrete along the sidewalk leading to many of the Unity buildings.

    Little Free Library at Winterset

    The latest Little Free Library from Fossil Forge is ready for sharing! This Library is located in the Winterset neighborhood in Lee's Summit, Mo. It is located at the community park and swimming pool. This Library was a collaborative effort between the neighborhood, developer and Fossil Forge. The design captures the elements of a garden shed. Flowers decorate the top and sides of this special Library.

    The Library is made of steel. It is painted with enamel paint for added durability. Special graphics add personality.

    This Library is large. It can comfortably hold dozens of books. There is even a shelf inside to better organize the books.

    Sidewalks and streets lead the way to this community-centered box. Time to share books!

    Colorful graphics for a vintage trailer

    Here at Fossil Forge Design, we do more than just metalwork. A recent project offered a chance to create some eye-catching graphics for a 1960s vintage camper. The business, Blue Heron Design, will be using this as a mobile retail store. A great idea for a cool trailer. The graphics use the colors and designs found in the store, but have the added twist of looking distressed and weathered.

    Circles make for a interesting garden gate

    The same homeowner that has the metal tree (earlier entry) needed a special garden gate to the backyard. Using some of the tree's geometric design, we created this custom gate. Over time, the gate will also turn a rich rusty brown...a perfect look in the garden.

    A simple locking latch is easy to open.

    Metal tree sprouts from azaleas

    Nature is painting this sculpture a beautiful rusty orange and brown. Its geometry looks nice against the house and the surrounding garden. The vintage farm implement adds a pretty touch of green to the scene.
