These railings were commissioned by a customer who
lives in a thatched cottage awash with detailing typical of Arts and Crafts
movement. They were
especially designed to complement this setting.
As a craftsman it's always a pleasure to make work where the detail
is the design. There again, I do like to think
that all of my work reflects this love
of detail. I always particularly
enjoy using contrasting
metals such as bronze or copper as a counterpoint
to the darker tones and textures of forged steel.
Unfortunately, with some of my work I don't always get chance to take
the best of photographs. I'm often fitting the work at a stage where
the background is still being decorated or occasionally the place
is a building site. Literally!
