G35a Contemporary Metal Garden Gate

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

Bowden, Manchester

Although these forged steel driveway gates have a modern and contemporary design, they were made using traditional blacksmithing techniques. The wide steel bars give an initial impression of wooden gates but, on closer inspection, the detailing reveals that the gates could only have been made using metal.

The "gaps" in the gates were not simply cut out. Instead, the steel was hammered to shape whilst hot in order move metal to one side, to create the attractive swellings around the gaps. The gates were not welded, instead all the joinery was made using rivets in hot punched holes, adding to the rich detailing seen throughout the gates.
