This pinwheel design ran through a number of balustrades and several gates on this project. Our input to the design that we were presented with was to treat it, in so far as was feasible, as a series of forgings rather than as a fabrication. While in some ways this was not the easiest path to take there were definite advantages in not having to weld and finish in some very tight corners, and the overall effect was much more characterful than it would otherwise have been, without, I feel, losing any of its dignity.

 

These pictures follow the course of some of the elements of the balustrading through the workshop and touch, also, on the gates and some of their detailing.
