Contemporary panel for a traditional cottage

I delivered this panel in January, for installation into a newly made oak door. The joiner who was fitting the door was to install the panels, so I dropped it off. The client e-mailed me some low-res images this week, and I was pleased to see how the design worked in their hallway.

The design is a simple abstraction of a tree and branch, to reflect the setting of the cottage and the client’s love of trees. As it was a front door, we decided to encapsulate the panel in a double glazed unti for warmth and security. This is easily done, as long as the decision is made at the design stage.
