Rose Arch

Rose arches are usually standard shapes which enable climbing plants to do this thing. But this arch commissioned by a customer in Guestling is at least as interesting as the plants that are beginning to colonise it.

Smugglers Cottage

The Smugglers Cottage in Hastings Old Town had a problem as interesting as it’s history. Situated next to a popular fish and chip restaurant, holiday makers would use it’s front verandah as a perch upon which to eat their fish and chips. The owner of this popular holiday cottage wanted to enclose the space for her guests, so we got to work.

Blue Bond

These simple railings and gates have been forged fabricated to be a simple addition to a front drive in Hastings. The pattern is sympathetic to block paving of the drive but given a deep blue powder coating to ensure it also stands out.

Wheat for it

These water themed gates with Wheat Finials were commissioned to shut pets into a lower garden near a busy main road in Hastiings. They have been shot blast, zinc sprayed and bronze powder coated to ensure they never rust and will be there for many years to come.

Something old, something new

We’ve just finished a really interesting job working with some master joiners at this stunning 15th century Manor House in Whatlington. We replaced the 9 leaded metal windows in central part of the buiilding on the right. With not a single right angle to be found in an oak framed building that settled over 500 years, we made templates of all the windows, forged new pintles, catches and window stays to produce a result that looks like it has been there for 500 years.

Rust In Peace

It’s always a pleasure to make a gate for a fellow artist. We’ve just installed this grass and wheat themed abstract gate to keep a herb garden safe from nibbling rabbits on a farm near the village of Pett. Working with the owner we arrived at a design that complimented the landscape and created wheat ear finials in the forge. The gate will be left to develop a patina of rust and then be clear lacquered to preserve for decades to come.

Winchelsea warmth

We’ve recently completed the renovation of two Inglenook fireplaces in a gorgeous 15th century cottage in the ancient Cinque Port of Winchelsea near Rye. Under the watchful eye of borough conservation officers the current owner has gone to amazing lengths to completely refurbish this amazing building and it’s been a pleasure to do the metalwork for him.

Juliette Balcony

We have just finished installing this Juliette balcony on the top floor of a house in Winchelsea near Rye. It involved installing scaffolding and hoisting it aloft round an overhanging roof. But with some extra muscle and a strong rope we were able to get it into place for fixing.

Beside the seaside

We’ve just finished the installation of this gate and railing on Bexhill seafront. It’s a similar design to some railings we installed last year at the other end of the seafront, within a couple of decades who knows it we may done enough for the whole seafront.

Silver lining

We don’t just make curved metal art but are regularly asked to make simpler fabricated railings. This is a set of railings and hand rails we’ve just made for a customer in Silverhill, St Leonards.
