Location: Rochester, NY
Material and Finish: Powder coated “oil rubbed bronze” forged iron on exterior railings and hand applied finish on interior wrought iron wine cellar door.
Description: Custom hand forged iron railings, decorative iron work and wine cellar door.
The custom iron work and hand forged iron wine cellar door was a labor of love. A tremendous amount of man hours went into hand crafting these pieces. We sent our craftsmen down to vineyards of Keuka Lake to study the shapes of the vines so that we could make the iron vines more authentic. The wrought iron grape vines were hand forged by our craftsmen using both hand hammered and power hammer techniques. The iron grapes were individually welded together from different sized metal balls to ensure each grape cluster was unique. Our craftsmen carefully twisted and textured the steel vines so this wine cellar door would be one of the most beautiful around. The home owner was ecstatic and the door won “Best of Houzz” so it seems others agree. Everything was finished with a hand applied bronze patina. The wine cellar door looks stunning against the Eldorado stone facade.
For the exterior of the wine cellar, we crafted some classical iron railings and a matching pedestrian gate. These were finished in a oil rubbed bronze powder coated finish.
