H27 Contemporary Wrought Iron Balustrade

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

Hampstead, London

A creative blend of straight lines and curves was used to make these contemporary wrought iron stair balustrades. The curvilinear and flowing shapes were made by forging the metal whilst hot. This gave its surface a rich texture full of character, which is protected by a waxed finish that highlights and enhances the texture and tones of the metal.

The flow of the curved bars, combined with the intersections of the straight lines, and the spiraling volute of the handrail lends the balustrade a three dimensional and sculptural quality.

The balustrades are a development of these balustrades commissioned for a boutique in the Piazza, Covent Garden. The owners of the work featured here also commissioned this safety grill for the window at the base of the stairs.
