There is a tree growing through the house, in fact there are two!

There is a tree growing through the house, in fact there are two!

Architectural Sculpture
Sigi Koko, the Principal of Down To Earth Design contacted me to create a railing that would compliment and accommodate a home that had a couple of trees growing through it.  Naturally my BENT Iron Art railing was the way to go. Seen here in these photos my BENT Iron Art railing intersects with the tree trunks that look like sculpted pieces on their own and go up and through the home.  The first photo has the railing finished with the wood handrail capping it off nicely. The rail had a flat iron piece on the top to fit into the dado groove on the bottom of the wood handrail.  The bottom rail is a decorative rail that screwed directly into the floor giving a nice rail to floor look.

BENT iron art interior railing with a distressed wood handrail and base

BENT iron art interior railing with a distressed wood handrail and base

Architectural Sculpture
I did this project a few years ago with the end result being a distressed wood railing with my BENT iron art railing inserts. The railing had golden oak handrails and base and white balusters.  The first step was to remove the white balusters and strip the oak handrail and base down to the bare wood.  From there I custom fit and created my BENT iron art railing design as inserts.  The iron was powder coated in a oil rubbed bronze finish. From that point the BENT iron art railing was then installed and attached to the handrail and wood base.  Then the bare wood was stained in a Jacobean color creating a distressed look.

STIX Sculptural Coat Rack

STIX Sculptural Coat Rack

Functional Art
My STIX Sculptural Coat Rack has found a new home to hold the coats, bag and umbrella's of many fine people in a law office in Toronto, Ontario. The inspiration for the STIX Coat rack came when I was thinking of a coat rack design that would be a sculpture on it's own and could be changed up to allow it to have a new look any time it was desired by the owner.  This led to the iron STIX being designed to slide in and out of iron tube slots in the base so each one can be moved around or just spun 45, 90, 180 or whatever degree you want. The base had to have enough weight to allow heavy jackets to be slung on the STIX so…

The scroll bench

The scroll bench

Functional Art
The scroll iron art bench began with a piece of reclaimed pine that was sitting in my studio covered in dust.  With a slight twist to the wood the iron art base needed to be built to allow for the unevenness. The base began to be made from individual hand bent iron and was  finished with a hand painted soft iron finish.  It now resides with a patron in Pennsylvania USA. This art piece has been SOLD.  I would be happy to create something similiar for you, please contact me.   Save

Stix and Circles Fence and Deck Railing

Stix and Circles Fence and Deck Railing

Architectural Sculpture
The conceptualization of Stix and Circles was inspired from the game "pick-up-sticks" that I would play as a young boy.  The stix of the iron art where laid out in a random pattern just like the game would have a pile of sticks.  I added in the circles and the balls to break up all the straight.  I first designed and created the fence pieces and then the railing was done at a later date.     Save
