Graced with a layered roof typical of Japanese architecture, Tim was inspired by this gate that welcomes visitors to Hope Park in Ganges on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.
This bench is an example of Japanese influenced timber furniture. The curving lines of the bench are similar in style to the curved roofs found in Japanese temples.
Hope is an ephemeral quality, and not one that we can see or touch. But hope is the reason we live, love, move forward, and make changes to ourselves and the world. And this may be something that we need to bring back into focus.
