H8:Bronze Copper and Steel Stair Balustrade

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

Youlgreave Derbyshire 2004

The uprights of these contemporary stair balustrades were made using contrasting metals. Two specially shaped steel uprights were joined to a forged steel centre piece using bronze rivets and copper spacers. Contrasting metals as detailing regularly feature in our work.

Forging the steel to shape gives the elements an attractive natural texture and an almost sculptural quality. The steel was burnished and finished with protective wax. This highlights the tones and textures in the balustrade that paint would mask.
