The design of this bespoke wrought iron gate was based around stylised
garden plants, leaves and calla lilies. The gate's hinges are a whimsical
play on the strap hinges seen on old church doors and the lack of
a frame at the top of the gate is a feature of many of our gates. The gate
is designed to look as good from
the back as the front which always the case with our work.
The metal was
heated in a blacksmith's forge
then hammered to shape to make the graceful organic detailing and
elegant tapered stems seen in
More information about how some of the leaves in these
gates were made is available here.
The owner also commissioned these complementary driveway gates
and these whimsical railings
