Inspired by Ditzler/Desiged by Hubbell/Gifted By The Buffums (Plus Odd Bonus Valentine Image)

This week, TSG digests the architectural curiosity that is Sonoma County's Sea Ranch Chapel

From the County website:

... this non-denominational chapel welcomes your visit. The 360-square-foot chapel and its grounds were gifts of Sea Ranch residents Robert and Betty Buffum in memory of Kirk Ditzler, a navy pilot, zoologist, and artist.
Ditzler’s drawings formed the basis for the chapel’s design, which was brought to life by architect/artist James Hubbell and a team of craftsmen and artisans using local materials. Hubbell also designed and crafted the windows, chandelier, doors, fountain, mosaics, and other elements in the chapel.

And here's that odd bonus Valentine image we promised you...
