The Town of Weaverville brought Hammerhead Stoneworks on to design and install an striking entry sign to welcome visitors as they enter town along Merrimon Avenue. The design features a moon-gate- a full circle arch. Originally meant to evoke the fresh growth and unlimited potential of a newly sprouted fiddlehead fern, it also looks an awful lot like the water wheel that’s just below the lake in the background. That’s a happy accident of the design process.
This project is still in progress. Tomorrow we will pick a beautiful slab of sandstone that will be engraved with the town greeting message and then installed to the left of the moon gate.
