Putting a nice nonblacksmitherist surface on some hot c464. It gets a little grabby at temperature so we wet down the dies with some WD-40.

Repost @longwoodgardens

I’m absolutely thrilled to be on this project in some small way. We will be working on several aspects of the rejuvenation, ranging from the restoration of historic ironwork, most likely Yellin.
The recreation to exacting specification of historic ornamental brass glazing systems and doors originally designed in 1920.
And the creation of newly designed decorative ironwork grills made from forged stainless steel. All for the Orchid House portion of the project.

It checks a lot of boxes for our range of expertise including consultation on materials and process during the exploratory phase of the job with our friends at John Milner Architects.

The winning combination.

In this case, part of the design process was informed by the presence of selected materials their manipulation and appropriate conceptual references.
I don’t know if I could be any more excited for this portion of a project we’ve been on for over a year now. I’ll be sharing more as the objects take shape. .
