When you think of memorable country estates you often think of the wonderful Wrought iron Gates that grace the pillared entrances . The gate is truly the welcome mat to the property . In Years past there was alot of thought that went into the design of the elegant scrollwork and interesting ornaments to give the visual effect that the deigners and Architects where envisioning. Often Times they were utilizing designs that traveled from the French and English countryside and reached back centuries . The Architect and Clients love of this art form of the forge was a true transending collaboration. Wrought iron was a standard of luxury and clientsthat were building exclusive residences needed the security and the elegance that the metal would provide. The wonderful hand made gate is hard to come by today but with the right Designer and Artist Blacksmith this is still possible. When one views a Hand forged gate it celebrates your arrival and you get a sense of tradition and perminence. You can feel the hammermarks of the craftsman that are frozen in time . It is the uniqeness of its one of a kind surface and texture incororated in the finished product that is the true rareity .

Hammersmith Studios Just Recently completed a Decorative Hand forged Wrought iron hinge for a customer . We could not be more pleased with the outcome. It was designed by Hammmersmith Studios for a Children’ s play room and was a main focal point for the interior design concept. The material chosen for the hinge was three sixteenth thick mild steel and was embellish with decorative motifs such as leaves and funny little creaturesto create a sense of whimsy. there where some interesting challenges with this project such as properly aligning the hinge barrels so as to allow the door to swing level. after any hour of tweaking and adjusting it worked perfectly and the Customer had it installed for his holiday party and after all that what it is all about .
