Prestwich Manchester 2011
The design of these whimsical wrought
iron railings was based around stylised garden plants. The calla lilies,
bulrushes and other organic detailing were made by heating the metal
in a blacksmith's forge
and then hammering it to shape. The long elegant tapers in the flowing scrolls
were made in a similar way.
Working the steel whilst hot
readily lends itself to creating the flowing and graceful organic curves
and other detailing featured in these railings. More
information about how the leaves in these gates were made can be seen here.
The owner also commissioned these complementary wrought iron driveway gates
and this pedestrian gate
