5 Step Stair Railing Design Transformation

5 Step Stair Railing Design Transformation

Architectural Sculpture
In this 5 step stair railing design project we transformed an old style railing into this amazing one of a kind BENT Iron Railing with distressed wood finish. When the client contacted me to go to their home and take a look at their stair railing that they wanted to transform I arrived to find their old railing had golden oak handrail and base and white balusters. Here is what the railings looked like before the stair railing design project began. STEP 1 - we removed the white balusters and pulled out all the nails that held them in place so we had a flat surface to attach the metal railing. STEP 2 - was a longer process of stripping the finish off of the oak handrail and base down…

Iron Stair Railing Anson Project

Iron Stair Railing Anson Project

Architectural Sculpture
These iron stair railing pieces were created for a client in the Spring of 2019. My client chose a square tube for the top rail and a flat steel bottom rail. The purpose of this was to have a substantial looking top rail that would attach to the wood posts and wall. The flat bottom rail sections had holes drilled into the bottom rail after the design was laid out to screw it to the wood trim along the floor. The process for my client was simple from beginning to end. I was provided both the height and length measurement and then created my BENT Iron Stair railing design for them. Once it was created it was finished in a powder coat finish and delivered to their home. The client…

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

Sigi Koko, the Principal of Down To Earth Design contacted me to use my BENT Iron Art railing as it complimented and accommodated 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 in a home that had a couple of trees growing through it 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…

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.

Here is my BENT Iron Art railing used by one of my great customers

Architectural Sculpture
          John from Carter Lake, Iowa says: "My experience with Cam Harris was simply great. I wanted to replace a wooden railing at the entrance to my home that a friend described as "a big baby crib", with a half wall and iron rail. My taste is not country and contemporary - I needed someone that could take a design and fabricate it. After a lot of Google image searching, I found Cam! Cam's work is exemplary. Don't know how else to say it. I was able to create a design, make a call, and describe what I wanted to do (to remove the eyesore at the entrance of my home) and it made sense to him. With some measuring and a picture, I was able to…

What do you think of our wrought iron railing artisan bent design used for a home interior?

Architectural Sculpture
Here is my BENT iron art railing used as an interior railing giving this home a unique look. I created my custom BENT Iron Art railings to suit my clients design and size requirements. Each design starts with a single hand bent piece of solid iron and the design evolves from there.  This is how each railing I do is unique as the design is allowed to unfold as it is created. What do you think?  Would you use this for your home or cottage?
