    Metal Head Inc.

    This driveway gate was fabricated from solid aluminum bar and plate and measures 20ft wide and 13ft high at the center. The top and center members were cut on a waterjet and fabricated into I-beam shapes. Both sides were fitted with antique brass accents in the form of collars, rosettes, and plates after the top coat of polyurethane paint.

    Picasso Gate Inc.

    These in-swinging automated entry gates are one set of four on the property. They were installed on a house built in the 1930's and represent the ironwork from that time period. All components, scrolls, spear points and column tops are all forged, with the exception of the hinges. All of the materials are textured and corners broke on all the square bars.

    La Forge De Style

    This blackened steel railing with a bronze cap and glass panels took 950 hours to complete and was 80% machining. The cap was designed by the architect and also machined. The biggest challenge on this project was getting the architect and client to decide on the details and then figuring out how to complete the project in a reasonable amount of time without having too many visible fasteners.

    The three wall mounted lantern brackets are approximately 125 years old and in 1998 one of the four brackets was stolen. A duplicate bracket was made to match the stolen one and was hot dipped galvanized. 27 years later the three original brackets needed to be restored and were then sandblasted. After the repairs were made, the brackets were then metallized with zinc.
