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
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.
