The bottom rail is a decorative rail that screwed directly into the floor giving a nice rail to floor look.

The base had to have enough weight to allow heavy jackets to be slung on the STIX so…

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
