While we work to develop the rest of the objects within this suite, I would like to introduce the Kent in a painted finish.

A carbon steel mockup of a railing section for eighty lineal feet of handicap ramps. The final will be painted stainless to ensure decades and decades of permanence.
In spite of its simplicity, this is the result of over a year and a half of design development. It needed to be just right for its inclusion at an historic and well respected regional botanical garden.

A shortened post in steel to prove the tooling as I develop it.
Tongs, fullers, swages and open dies all tailored for the Massey for this specific job. It’s one of my favorite aspects of all our projects, design development.
The finished work will be in stainless steel with patina.
