This outdoor patio sits on a bluff overlooking Lake Erie. The owner wanted fencing to compliment the panoramic views of the lake.
"I have been forging hand made iron for the homeowner for the past 5 years. He knows quality though, and has been incredible to work for." Andy Chambers (Fabricator)
The owner wanted a fence with a distinct, physical, hand made beauty that is not found in mass produced items. Each panel of the fence was individually forged with attention to detail and exceptional craftsmanship. The fence was crafted at the Arc Iron Creations forge in Buffalo, NY.
Since the fence was outdoor and located around a swimming pool, the artist chose galvanizing for corrosion protection and long service life. The artist chose to etch the surface with a Sculpt Nouveau patina which was then top coated with a polyurethane sealer. This provided a deep, rich finish, but was transparent enough to allow the spangle of the galvanizing to show through.
The owner was impressed with the end result. So much so that he commissioned the artist to fabricate supports with the same finish for the table in the adjacent outdoor barbecue .
