This is amazing. I have some old scrap metal I wasn't sure what to do with but I think you've just given me some inspiration.

That's actually a "pendentive gazebo" in the background.

Here's a better shot of that gazebo:

I dreamed last night there was a big kinetic wind vane attached to the top...weird.

It's great! I really like that much more than
most gazebos.

Thank you,
I just really love a round entrance way.I've always admired Chinese and Japanese walls with portals like this.

round entrances are always good, they're very organic feeling. i hope your client has a garden to do this piece justice!

I may have product-design blinkers on right now. But I see potential to develop this design in the direction of a more 'commercial' product.
If there were five panels (identical and therefore easy to produce etc.) which fitted together (slide into eachother's tube ends) to make the circular arch, then the piece could be compact for packaging and transport (the arc segments laying in each others arc shape). And it could be sold in 'kit' form like this.
Since the premise would essentially be an imaginary hexagon excribed by the circle, where the ground is the 6th edge of the hexagon, it would be what's sacred geometry to me. (There's something 'sacred' about being able to take a compass and divide the circle it's just drawn into exactly six segments with its radius.)
It would need one other 'component type', the feet. And maybe.. maybe fixings and fastenings depending whether one could be clever enough about the design of the linking between segments.
You could outsource production, because it would really be pretty simple to make. Tube bending might be the most complex process. And thus be able to get on with custom art works if that's what you prefer to be doing yourself. And have income 'happening' in the background while you do so.

That's just great. Let some beautiful rozes grow across it and a lovely little bench under it so you can create a romantic place in the garden.
If i would lived near you I loved to have one aswell.

Stick a bench under it, sequester it in a quiet corner of the garden and you've got the perfect Zen moment, just waiting to happen.
Nice.

Or.. you know.. you could use it as an Entrance Arch. ;)

This is awesome. I can imagine climbing vines and flowers wrapping around this to make a magical gateway (:
.......as hippyish as that sounded....
