H53: Bespoke Flowing Steel Balustrade

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

Hampstead London 

These curvilinear steel balustrades were designed to capture a feeling of movement and flow. The metal was forged to shape by working it whilst hot, as were the tactile handrails.

The balustrades have a burnished steel finish. First the metal was sand blasted, then highlighted with a wire brush, finally hard clear protective wax was rubbed into its surface. This highlights the steels natural metallic tones and texture that would otherwise be masked by painting.

The owner commisioned these balustrades to complement railings previously designed for another staircase within the property.
