Hi Georgia, I created this blog for you! The gate to the left was created from a drawing of a woman's hair, interwoven with leaved vines. This is my interpretation, which looks nothing like the inspirational drawing. It's interesting how the creative process works, one little picture or a portion of a photograph can be used as inspiration. Somehow the result of my ironwork never looks like the original inspiration! Excuse the photo, I let Steve loose with the camera. Paw-paw, he's the man, aka--Kitty! 14 lbs. of lovable fluff. He has pretty gold eyes, but the flash was too bright! The railing to the left was also for our client in Montana. The theme was native plants of Montana. We just created the ironwork in this, the contractor installed it, the setting really did it justice. I really love this railing and hope to duplicate it in the log home that we will be building!
