G97: Bespoke Art Nouveau Garden Gate

"... stylish, elegant, and bespoke metalwork ..."

Great Shelford, Cambridge 2012

This bespoke Art Nouveau garden gate was designed to complement a pair of previously commissioned gates.

The design of the gate is a blend of straight lines and flowing curves typical of Art Nouveau metalwork. At Verdigris we are rather partial to these sweeping lines and they often feature in our designs. The metal was shaped by heating it in a blacksmith's forge and hammering it to shape when hot.

The gate has a galvanised finish to prevent corrosion. This starts off bright and shiny but will slowly age and weather, turning matt grey as it does so. This finish is in keeping with the brickwork of the walled garden the gate leads to.
