These forged steel driveway gates are a good example of how we enjoy designing and making contemporary and modern metalwork using traditional blacksmithing techniques. Wide steel bars are used to give an initial impression of wooden gates. However, on closer inspection, the detailing reveals that the gates could only have been made using metal.
The "gaps" in the gates have not simply been cut out. Instead the steel has been moved away by forging and hammering it to shape. This creates the swellings around the gaps; a subtle and attractive detail typical of our commissions. The gates are not welded, instead all the joinery is made using rivets in hot punched holes, adding to the rich detailing seen throughout the gates.
