Burl and Cindy Mostul own and operate Rare Plant Research in Oregon City, Oregon. They built themselves a Romanesque dream house on a little hill above their many greenhouses. When so many new houses are poorly designed with no relation to the site, it's a pleasure to see a such a unique vision
The house has a pond and and it's own folly to display some of their prized plants. The walls act as heat sinks to help warm micro climates for their exotic bromeliads and other plants.
I'll be showing some of my Romanesque inspired sculpture and demonstrating carving in the gardens this Saturday.
