This Inner West home in Sydney has beautiful lead light windows in the front door which the owner wanted incorporated into a security door. The main floral motif of the lead light door panel was used as a starting point for the design.
Once the design was completed and approved by the client work started making all the intricate curves from 12mm solid steel bar. The small leaves were challenging to make because of their varied and tight radius curves. There were four separate bending operations needed to make them. Once all the parts were finished they were assembled in a jig on the work bench before being welding together.
The completed door captures the sinuous flow of vines and leaves weaving up from floral blooms.
