Hand Forged Bespoke Ironwork from Black Dragon Forge

This is a hand crafted bespoke garden gate with railings I designed and made recently for some private clients in Staffordshire. The design brief was to use only traditional blacksmithing techniques so the work had the style and integrity to be in keeping with their listed property, but used with a contemporary twist, and to draw reference to the house name, Grapevine Cottage. Forging the grapes and vine leaves caused no end of problems, with many of the first attempts ending up in the scrap bin! Perserverance paid off though with both client and maker being justifiably pleased with the results.
