R78: Elegant and Hand Forged Metal Railings

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

Letchmore Heath, Hertfordshire 2012

These bespoke, elegant and understated metal railings have a contemporary design but were made using traditional blacksmithing techniques.

Their hand forged "foliage" was based on the concept of youthful plant shoots emerging from besides the railing's posts. These shoots appear to be growing rapidly and inquisitively. The railings are rich with hand forged detailing such as the stylised leaves and the graceful curving lines of railing's top rail. More information about how some of the leaves were forged can be found in this page.

The owners of these railings also commissioned these driveway gates to complement the railings.
