Burnt Cedar Shed

Micah worked with students through the Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative to build a new garden shed for the P-Patch (community garden) on Judkins Street in Seattle’s Central District.

This shed received its distinctive look through the Japanese art of shou-sugi-ban. Students gently charred the outside of the cedar siding, a technique that provides for water resistance as well as a striking aesthetic. The garden shed is currently used by residents in the neighborhood to store tools for gardening year-round.
