These bespoke steel gates are a modern and contemporary interpretation of Art Nouveau metalwork .
The asymmetrical design of the gates is a creative blend of both straight and flowing lines, typical of the Art Nouveau movement. At Verdigris we are rather partial to these sweeping curves and they regularly feature in our designs.
The bold curvilinear elements seen in the gates were made by heating the steel in a blacksmith's forge then hammering the metal to shape when hot and malleable. The gates also show a range traditional blacksmith's detailing such as elegant forged tapers and hot punched holes.
