R107: Botanical Sculptural and Organic Garden Railings

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

Chorlton, Manchester 2014

The design of these bold and expressive wrought iron garden railings was inspired by stylized and natural plant forms.

Rather than using conventional support posts for the railings, clusters of flowers, stems, leaves and tendrils are used to support the handrail ... which looks like it is still continuing to grow over the brick wall itself!

Although the design of the railings is rather contemporary, traditional blacksmithing techniques were used to shape the organic detailing. When the metal is heated in a forge it become soft and pliable and readily lends itself to be being hammered to shape by hand; hence the unique and individual nature of the railings.
